Crosman® Corporation, a leader in the design, manufacturing and marketing of innovative products for the shooting sports, has partnered with Nosler® Inc, the world’s leading manufacturer of the finest grade hunting bullets. Their first collaboration produced a new, .357 caliber hunting bullet for airguns featuring Nosler’s Ballistic Tip® technology.
According to Crosman Vice President of Marketing, Bob Hampton, “Nosler was the obvious choice to develop a dedicated .357 hunting bullet equal to the tremendous performance of our new grade of hunting air rifle, the Benjamin® Rogue™ ePCP™.” The resultant new Benjamin eXTREME™ Bullet by Nosler features a red polymer tip designed to resist deformation and increase downrange terminal velocity. “This bullet delivers superb hunting accuracy and the deeper penetration demanded by dedicated hunters,” said Hampton.
“We are very pleased to work with Crosman to create pioneering bullet technology needed for serious airgun hunting with their new Rogue ePCP air rifle,” said Bob Nosler, President of Nosler, Inc. “At Nosler, our research and development team is dedicated to providing the best possible hunting bullet performance, whether for the traditional, centerfire rifles or the new, exciting high power air rifles from Crosman,” said Nosler.
Engineered specifically for the new Benjamin Rogue electro pre-charged pneumatic air power technology, the .357 caliber Benjamin eXTREME Bullet by Nosler combines Nosler’s famous ballistic tip technology within a special, lead alloy body. “The stepped driving bands and hollow base design automatically adjust to the power applied, providing precise control in the barrel, with minimal resistance,” comments Nosler. The new bullet delivers a sectional density of .162, a ballistic coefficient of .176 and weighs in at 145 grains.
The Benjamin eXTREME Bullet by Nosler will debut on the range at the 2011 Media Day, and be exhibited during SHOT Show 2011 in Las Vegas from January 18-21 at Crosman booth number 12740. The bullets will be sold in black and gold boxes of 25 with an MSRP of $24.99.
