What bullet is this?

What kind of bullet is this? I acquired 48 handloaded rounds of these loaded up for a .300 wsm. It says on the box they are 150 grains. Would they be ok for deer and/or bear?


Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

Definitely Nosler ballistic tips.

I've used them for deer and they worked fine.

Re: What bullet is this?

I agree that they are Nosler Ballistic Tips. I am of the opinion that it is never a good idea to shoot someone else's handloads. It's just not worth it. You can never be sure of how someone else loaded the ammo. What if they slipped up and filled one of cartridges with pistol powder?

Something that dangerous is unlikely to happen, but why take the risk? Pull the bullets, pop the primers, and fertilize the lawn with the powder. The cases and bullets are the only things you can be sure about.

I agree. I will pull them, but was wondering if I'd be better off loading them back up, or switching them out for a different bullet like a Nosler partition or accubond?

I am certain that a 150 BT will kill a bear. But it wouldn't be my first choice. If you shot a bear up close with that 150 out of a magnum, you will have shrapnel city, which may or may not be ok. If you want the bt'S for bear, I'd jump up to a 180 anyhow.

I would never use a 150 grain BT out of a .300 magnum for bear. A heavier BT yes, but not a 150 BT.

If you acquired some elses handloads and going to try in your gun would be a big no no. The case might of been not sized enough for your chamber causing the first problem. I would not trust someone else load that i didnt know real well as say what powder and how much is in it would be un known.

My uncle is pulling the bullets and working up a couple different loads for me to try in the brass.
