Default .33 Nosler

Read an article in, Rifle, magazine over the weekend. I think this is probably the best of the different cartridges Nosler has introduced to hunters over the past few years. Everything the .338 Win. Mag. should have been. While the Winchester version is good, it isn't great by any stretch of the imagination. Performance is only slightly better than the .338-'06 which in my opinion, doesn't quite get it to true magnum status. The .33 Nosler certainly belongs in the spotlight. I hope hunters give it the recognition it deserves.

I hear you but, the .338 Winchester Magnum is hard to beat, especially with the new powders and bullets available to hand loaders. The Nosler is a nice new cartridge however falls short of the .338 Remington Ultra Magnum. Thanks for the info.

How does a 33 nosler compare to the 338wm, 338 rum, 338 edge, 338 lupua?

I don't have the article here in front of me but.... 225 gr. bullet over 3000 fps is in the stats. 20% greater performance than the .338WM.

Can squeeze another 100 fps out of the Ultra with new IMR7977.

Look at it as a reinvented 330 Dakota

But some guys have even created avatars and forum names in praise of .338 Win Mag.
What about those guys ?

DD: The .338WM is a great cartridge in a small package. But, the Nosler version uses the same (.30-'06 length) action to its full capacity.

And yes, it's pretty much like the .330 Dakota.

We gotta understand that pretty much every cartridge commonly used today has evolved over time. The .25-20 has become the .257 Weatherby Mag. That doesn't make those cartridges in between these two extremes, obsolete. Same with the family of .338's.

I think they may need a back rub to sooth the pain.

My friend just ordered a new custom Nosler 33. He ordered it from Nosler. He does have a 338-06, 338 Win Mag and a 338 Ultra.

We'll see if Nosler supports their proprietary brass in the long term. I hope so, I bought off on their 280 Ack.

Will you be a better hunter or marksman? Or is the 33 Nos more capable then a 338 RUM, 340 Bee, 338 Lapua, or even a 338 winny? Probably not. But sometimes it's just fun to be different.
