As long as we're wishing, please bring back the .284 140 gr Solid Base bullets. This was one of the best bullets ever in my 7x57. They were discontinued before I could try them in my .280 Rem and 7mm Rem Mag.

I see there will be .224 50gr Varmageddon. Good deal when they become available.
More .358s. 200 & 225, maybe even a 250gr Ballistic Tips? How about a 270 or 275 Partition?

The plain old Solid Bases worked well for me & some I still use are getting scarce on my shelves. 22/50 & 52gr, 6.5/125 & 140gr, 7mm/140, 150, & 160gr, 30/150, 165, & 180gr would be great.

My wish list is short and simple.

A. Would love if Nosler made a simple basic cup and core entry level bullet as an option.....no plastic tip. Like their old solid base. I'd buy them and so would a bunch of other people.

B. Package bullets 100 per box instead of 50. There are differences between lots of bullets even with Nosler, and it's aggravating narrowing down a load using up a box of 50 only to discover a different box has a change in ogive, etc.

Hmmmmm
.358 Partition RN 250 and 275 grain. Only Woodleigh makes a good medium to heavy RN anymore. And, a 35 Nosler to push them. Maybe even limited runs of RN partitions in heavier for caliber weights for all calibers. Everyone has pretty much abandoned the RN but I bet they’d sell.

.257 ABLR heavier than 120 grains. I always thought the 25’s deserved a good high BC bullet.

How about a bonded, tipped Partition. Put everything into one bullet. Maybe throw a BT on it too.

Better price on the brass.
In all honesty they pretty much have all the bases covered for what I want and need. There is a need for a good 25 cal bullet around 130-135 grains made by a large scale company. That would make me want a 25-‘06 again.

Yes +100. I love Speer Hot Cor bullets but their consistency as far as availability flat out sucks. A Nosler cup and core that’s akin to the Hot Cor in price and performance in a 100 count box would be great! Good call on this one.
