These should theoretically see a little more consistency at extended ranges.

I wonder what kind of velocity you'd get with a 26 inch barrel. N-570?

In the process of having a 30 nosler built like this now. Waiting on parts like everyone else. Still pretty far out. Found 245 Elite Hunters and IMR 8133. Hoping to come across some N570 before the gun is done.

I would guess 2950 is where you would hit pressure with a proper throat. I’ve pushed 230s over 3050. I’m seeing guys getting over 2900 with h1000. If I could get my hands on 10-15 I’d do some pressure testing.

Man these sound Like the ticket! I have a 300 NM AI getting built right now and I planned to try 230’s & 245’s in them. And now these 245’s are very intriguing !

Curious to see numbers on these VS the elite hunters.

I have a 27" Broughton 5c barreled 30 Nosler that is appropriately throated for the 215's. I run the 245's at 2900fps with ADG brass and RL33 which in my experience, will match N570 no problem. It has a beautiful node at 2900, although in pressure testing it made 2950 with no issues. Hope this helps

Looks like they'll probably do fine if this is any indicator of their abilities....

Bryan Litz Won the 2021 NF ELR Challenge running these bullets in his 300 Norma + N565 + 5-25 ATACR !!

Out shooting over 200 competitors with targets averaging 1 moa tall between 700 yards and 1.2 miles 😎 Nicely Done. That's a helluva feather in the hat.

I'll just go ahead and plan on grabbing a few hundred when they hit the shelves.

It is a tough match and not trying to discredit at all. But there are two classes and he won his class. He may still have had top scope over all, I am not sure.

10-4, I wasn't aware. I've read a limited amount about the competition enough to know that it's a beast. I'm sure it's fun.... maybe like golf is fun until you lose your temper and snap a club over your head then chuck it into the pond....

It’s been released and had a short run available a month or two ago I noticed.
