Bullet review
 
Over the years have killed well into the hundred on whitetails. Weights range from 60lbs to 300 lbs. bullet performance was flawless. Bullet shoots really good but game performance is where it is at.

Shot a 500# Boar black bear at 225 yards with 115 grain Nosler Partition with a 257 Weatherby Mark V. The bullet entered his left shoulder and penetrated his whole body length and stopped under the hide in his right rump. The bear near moved a inch, and the bullet performed beautifully !

The 117 gr Nosler is no longer made in .25 cal. When I loaded it I used 52.5 gr of H4831. The .308 in 180 gr is in a .30-06 using 55.5 gr of IMR 4831. Never did either bullet fail to drop a deer in its tracks. The .25 dropped a buck so quick at 130 yards that I thought I missed him. The Ruger #1 shot dime size groups with that bullet at 100. The .308 180's out of a Rem. 760 pump would hold five shots that I could lay a quarter over and cover all of the holes. My son has the Rem now. The Nosler Partition bullet is my hunting bullet and has been for 30 years. The .25-06 was just shy of the lands, but the Rem. was a box mag and COAL was determined by the magazine.

after reading T green form texas post about his experiences with the 115 grain out of his 257 roberts I would just like to add that i shoot the same caliber and bullet and must agree with his assesment only i have taken a moose and a cow elk each at about 75 yards and 100 yards along with mule and whitail deer.i recoverd the bullets from the moose and elk ond the front lead section was gone-common in these bullets but with the deer they all passed through.They are still the king of bullets.

Shot a nice 8 pt buck at 368 yards measured with a laser range finder. The bullet performed beautifully. The 150 grain Nosler Partition shot from a Browning A-Bolt Stainless Stalker, with a Leupold Scope went in on the second rib from the front on the left side and traversed the body cavity coming out the right shoulder right on the point of the shoulder. The lungs were gone and exit wound was large with an easy blood trail to follow. Being a southern boy and usually hunting in the woods this is the longest shot I have ever made. The bullets I shoot are custom loads made up by Bob Shell of Obsolete Ammo fame. I fully recommend him to you for your ammunition needs he is the best. I tried Federal Premium and could not get them to group. These 150's from Bob clover leaf at 100 yards and are very consistant. Good hunting and good luck Ron

Always heard that the partitions were too soft or not accurate enough. Not true in my case. Recoil sensitive friend used 180 grain NP in 308 win in South Africa on Kudu, Wildebeest, Impala, Blesbok, Springbok and Zebra. All were one shot kills(and believe me, if the bullet is wrong or the shot is wrong you won't get a Wildebeest or Zebra or Kudu with one shot!). All animals expired within 40 yards of were they were when they were shot and accuracy with a 1 in 10 twist barrelled gun was less than 1 MOA.

I use the 250 NP on feral hogs here in Texas. They drop in their tracks - never recovered a single bullet. Nuff said. I use the 115 gr NP in my 257 Rbts I have only recoverd 1 bullet in about 20 deer shot. Never lost a deer, buck or doe in 15 years with this bullet. I get .75 inch groups with my 257 24 inch Douglas barrel. My whelen also has a Douglas barrel 25 inch. I get 1 - 1 1/4 inch groups with it at 100 yds. I'm sold.
