Nosler’s Varmageddon Varmint Bullets
Nosler added a new line of lower priced bullets and ammunition for high-volume varmint shooters called “Varmageddon.” They’re available as component bullets in .172″, .204″, .224″ and .243″ diameters, and loaded in .17 Rem., .204 Ruger, .221 Fireball, .222 Rem., .223 Rem., .22-250 and .243 Win. ammunition. The new bullets are quite a step up in quality from cheap bulk and rather different from Ballistic Tip Varmint bullets.
Don’t mistake lower price for lower quality, though. Varmageddon is a varmint bullet designed to be destructive, but at the same time is tough enough to stand up to twist rates as tight as 1:7 inches at high velocity without turning into little blue puffs of lead vapor exiting the muzzle.
