Nosler Increases Reduced Drag Factor Bullet Line Offerings

Bend, Ore –– Nosler®, Inc. announces the expansion of the very popular Reduced Drag Factor™ (RDF) product line to include new bullet calibers and weights that are in high demand from customers. These new additions include the following in both 100 count and 500 count boxes:

  • 22cal 85gr.—G1 Ballistic Coefficient 0.498 | G7 Ballistic Coefficient .245
  • 6.5mm 130gr.— G1 Ballistic Coefficient 0.615 | G7 Ballistic Coefficient .307
  • 7mm 185gr.—BC field verification in process
  • 30cal 210gr.— BC field verification in process


The RDF line was designed from the ground up by Nosler’s world-class team of engineers with the goal of delivering exceptionally high BCs that result in the flattest trajectory and least wind drift possible. Several key design factors contribute to the RDF’s game-changing performance. Nosler’s meticulously optimized compound ogive, which bridges traditional tangent and secant bullet shapes, is insensitive to seating depth, allowing handloaders to seat bullets to magazine length with no loss of accuracy due to bullet jump. Also lending itself to the bullet’s sleek form factor is a long, drag reducing boat-tail, making the product optimal for long range efficiency.

When compared side-by-side, shooters will immediately notice a striking visual contrast between Nosler’s RDF and today’s leading industry match bullets, with a hollow point so small it’s nearly undetectable to the naked eye. The bullet’s tightly profiled design boasts a 40% average reduction in meplat size, completely eliminating the need to point and trim tips—a laborious step performed by match shooters in order to achieve increased ballistic efficiency and an edge over the competition. 

The RDF product line features the highest BCs and smallest, most consistent meplats of any hollow point match bullet line on the market, making this bullet a key component for consistent match performance.
