For over 60 years, the professionals at Nosler have been making precision bullets for competitive shooters, varmint hunters and big game hunters. Now they've taken Nosler premium hunting bullet technology and created a Custom line of premium ammunition with the use of new brass from popular brands from the reloading industry.
Loaded exclusively for MidwayUSA, Nosler Custom Ammunition is available in over 100 loads. The brass is cut to the exact SAAMI specifications, chamfered, deburred and the flash holes are checked for proper alignment. Primers are inspected and hand seated. The powder is hand thrown and verified for consistency. Finally the bullet is inspected and properly seated in exact alignment.
The entire loading process is personally hand-assembled by Nosler Ballisticians. The finished round is equal to the best of handloads. Loaded rounds are hand packaged in plastic ammo boxes with custom ballistic data printed in the label. This ammunition is new-production, non-corrosive in boxer-primed, reloadable brass cases.
Note: Some calibers may be loaded in commercial brass if Nosler brass is unavailable.
Nosler Ballistic Tip Hunting bullets have been trusted by hunters for nearly 25 years. They are precision made and individually inspected for the utmost quality which translates to incredible accuracy with every shot. The heavy jacket base prevents bullet deformation during firing and holds together at extreme velocities as well as a polycarbonate tip that resists deformation in the magazine and initiates expansion upon impact.

What Mauser Ammo and Reloading Components do I need?
MidwayUSA carries JS and JRS 8x57mm (8mm Mauser) ammunition and brass. The standard 8x57mm JS Mauser is by far the most common version of this cartridge, used in military and sporting bolt action rifles. The less-common JRS Mauser is a rimmed cartridge developed for double barrel rifles. If you have a bolt action 8mm Mauser, you will want 8x57mm JS Mauser ammunition and components.
