Unique Calibers

Besides producing various established calibers, Nosler has also introduced some unique calibers of their own. A number of calibers have been produced by Nosler such as the .28 Nosler and .30 Nosler cartridges. Many of the cartridges have been designed to be optimal for use in hunting or precision shooting applications, often seeking to improve upon the established casings they are based upon. Something to note is that there are fewer firearms available in these homebrew Nosler calibers than there are in contemporary, common calibers.
