The Nosler® Partition® was the first bullet loaded in the Federal Premium® line, and it continues to be a standard for consistency and reliability. Its partitioned lead core allows the front half of the bullet to mushroom on impact, but keeps the back half intact for deep penetration.

The front half of the Nosler Partition expands to deliver energy to whatever it hits, while the rear core stays together to keep pushing the bullet deep. The two are separated by a copper-alloy partition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the round for the 308 Have used this on Elk, Whitetail, hogs, and paper. Great knockdown, superb accuracy. I don’t handload but this round shoots like I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT Bought this round for my Africa plains game trip. Round did very well on game from Impala to Blue Wilderbeest and large size Kudu. Skinners retrieved 3 rounds from 3 animals and very nice mushroom shape. Kudu pictures was a 200 yard heart shot, did nor pass thru, but dropped him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best of the best Been using these the last 5 or 6 years. On paper will shoot cloverleafs all day long out of my Weatherby Vanguard. Have shot a whitetail every year and it drops them in their tracks. Has never let me down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Ammo - Wish I Could Find Some The 308 Win in 180 grain Nosler Partition has been the best ammo for the combined deer and black bear hunting I do. Always holds together with a good mushroom to pass through. The only downside is that I can't find a dealer who can get any of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mule deer at 352 yds Used this ammo in my Steyr Scout this season and dropped a 4x4 mule deer like a sack a potatoes at 352 yds. Very impressed with the round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hunting cartridge I hunt with a 30-06 and have used this cartridge hunting large antelope in South Africa. I successfully bagged a few Eland weight around 250 - 300 Kgs (550+ pounds). Most shots were taken around 150 - 200 meters (160-220 yds.) Good penetration and mushrooming with great weight retention. This is a great combination for the non-self loading hunter. Would recommend for all medium and large antelope.
