By John Nosler, as Told to Gary Lewis
“Going Ballistic” is the story of John Nosler – a hunter, innovator and self-taught ballistics engineer whose name has become a legend in world-wide hunting circles. There are few serious hunters anywhere who haven't used, at one time or another, Nosler bullets. In fact, Nosler bullets are used by more sportmen than any other brand because of their superior performance. Born in California, Nosler came of age in the Great Depression and raced his home-built cars on the dirt tracks of Huntington Beach and Pomona. From California, he moved to Oregon and embarked on a legendary big game hunting career. He first hunted moose in Canada in the 1940s and recognized the need for a projectile that would stand up to the velocity generated by the new magnum rifle cartridges. The result was a variety of “Nosler” bullets that have literally become endemic to the hunting world. When hunters want a bullet they can depend on, the name they trust more than any other is Nosler. From the Partition, introduced to the shooting public in the late 1940s, to the Zipeda, Solid Base and Ballistic Tip, to today's cutting-edge AccuBond, John Nosler has built a reputation on accuracy and performance one bullet at a time. People everywhere know his bullets; now they can read his story in this book put into literary form by award-winning writer Gary Lewis of Bend, Oregon, also the author of the acclaimed book “Deer Hunting Tactics” . With a Foreword by Chub Eastman. Issued in 6¼ x 9¼ -inch format, 224 pages, many photographs, hardcover beautiful dust jacket.
