New Lead-Free Nosler E-Tip™ Bullet

In some parts of the country, State Agencies and/or private ranges are imposing “no-lead” restrictions for hunting and match ammunition. This is to avoid on-site lead pollution and to lessen the effects of lead ingestion by protected species such as the California Condor. Nosler has just announced its new E-Tip™ Lead-Free Bullet. Because the E-Tip™ has a polymer tip plus a dual-cavity interior (E² Cavity™), Nosler claims that its new bullet provides better expansion and enhanced weight retention. The new bullet will be available in the fall of 2007 in a 180gr, 30-caliber design. We applaud Nosler’s engineering work on this new bullet and hope that Nosler chooses to produce similar lead-free projectiles in 6.5mm and 6mm.
