  1. Default 28 nosler load info

    Hello all,

    I am new to this forum and have done some research and could not find anything on the topic of 28 Nosler loads.

    I just picked up a new Browning X Bolt in 28 Nosler. I was hoping somebody here has some ideas or actual first hand knowledge on some good 28 Nosler hunting loads. I prefer 160 grain and higher projectiles as this gun will be my elk/mule deer/antelope gun but I am open to any and all suggestions. I prefer Nosler products only because they have been very effective with me with my other firearms and there load data is spot on, but if somebody has some other magical projectile they use please let me know.

    Thank you,

    Teddy

    Retumbo, RL33 or N570 if you can find it. I'd pick up some factory loaded ammo to break in the barrel and save the brass. Nosler 160 accubonds or 175 long range if you prefer Nosler.
    I currently shoot the 195EOL with RL33 in my rifle.

    I'm really liking the 160 Accubond in front of Reloader 26.

    I don't load for 28 Nosler but based on a lot of forum reading (winter has been long) I agree with cahunter805. Other powders to consider IMR8133, Ramshot Magnum, and H1000. RL33 seems to be just about everyone's go-to powder.

    I saw a notice that Nosler was fulfilling brass orders for 28 Nosler so you might see it in stock.

    Thanks guys for the info its been very helpful for a good starting point. Yes I was a little leery of buying a rifle in 28 Nosler for the mere fact brass is not always easily found, but I guess that's common with new rounds. Thanks again guys for the help its much appreciated.

    Hope to shout. I was scrolling down thinking, that's a decent group. Then saw the yardage.

    Nice shooting.
