    Nosler 7mm 120gr Solid Base

    Does anyone know anything about these bullets? I've got some from a bulk buy and can't find any details anywhere

    There is some info on the 120gr BT Noslers on reloaders nest. Start here (7mm-08) but other loads of other 7mm info via the main listing.

    7mm-08 Remington @ www.reloadersnest.com

    Good luck.

    ..they were designed for the 7-30 Waters at 2,700 fps. I've got a box and would like to try them in my 7mm-08 at around 2,800 fps. My max range is around 200 yards so the high ballistic coefficientcy is not needed.

    Is this bullet tough enough ? It will only be used on Georgia whitetails.

    Nosler fifth edition says the 120 grain Solid Base Flat Point is an excellent choice in the .284 Winchester with a short box magazine. The .284 Win. can push the 120 gr. to over 3,000 fps.

    If you are going to use a 120 gr bullet, go with the 120 gr BT. This is a very tough bullet and will stand yp tp velocities even highrt than your 7-08 can generate.
    Water expansion test from my 280 AI were quite impressive!

    Nosler......SOLID BASE bullets are essentially Ballistic Tip bullets with an ordinary lead tip instead of a plastic tip. Actually, it is the other way around, as Solid Base bullets preceded the introduction of the Ballistic Tip by several years. When a plastic tip was added to the old Solid Base, boat-tail spitzer bullet the Ballistic Tip was born and marketing history made. The popularity of the Ballistic Tip resulted in the disappearance of the Solid Base from the Nosler line for many years, but now it is back as a lower cost alternative to the Ballistic Tip. Solid Base bullets are recommended for the same range of game as the Ballistic Tips.

    You guys worry too much. I mean, how do they shoot?? Dredge up some data for the 120 grain weight in your caliber and shoot it. Boat tails giving any ballistic advantage under 600 yards has been disproved, and as to accuracy, Dave Emery, the head designer for Hornady, says that they are not any more accurate than flat base. I don't use any boat tails unless I happen to try them and find that they work. My guess is that they will work fine. The bullet for the 7-30 Waters is a flat POINT, by the way.~Muir
