Nosler also makes a CTBT in 458 300gn for 45/70. You can find them on the Nosler site with a little work. Also Winchester loads them.ShadeTree":2gk9u9fw said:Cleveland48":2gk9u9fw said:I wish you could find for RN bullets these days. It seems the spitzers have almost made them extinct. I’ve always though the round nose design made beautiful mushrooms. Would love to find som 175 grain RN for my little 275 rigby. Unfortunately I have had zero luck.

They definitely have their use depending on the application, and in the right application are not inferior but a benefit IMO.
Problem is in my view the public is convinced they need a slicked up high B.C bullet for 150 yd shots. Who would want to use that old log wagon of a bullet when better is well, just better in most views. So manufacture's produce what follows the hype and sells.
Speer is down to just 1 RN hunting bullet, and that is in .311. Sierra makes 2, both in 30 caliber, a 150 and a 180. Nosler 2 that I know of, both in 30 caliber. Hornady I think still makes the most but they dropped a bunch of them. The 30 caliber 180 RN is a limited production deal.
