Nosler®, Inc. Announces M48 Long Range Carbon™
January 22, 2018

Bend, Ore – January 22, 2018 – Nosler, Inc. is proud to announce the introduction of its M48 Long Range Carbon™ rifle. The new rifle model builds on the features that made the M48 Long Range™ a success with the addition of a PROOF Research™, carbon fiber-wrapped, match-grade barrel. By combining precision machining and space-age materials, the PROOF barrel reduces the overall weight of the rifle while providing the utmost accuracy and durability.

PROOF Research™ carbon fiber wrapped barrels are not only lighter; they are stiffer and dissipate heat more quickly than traditional stainless steel barrels for enhanced accuracy, shot after shot. Precisely mated to a trued and faced M48 receiver and bedded in a Manners® MCS-T carbon fiber stock, the PROOF barrel brings cutting-edge technology to Nosler’s latest hunting rifle.

The Model 48 Long Range Carbon™ is an excellent choice for mountain hunting, backcountry excursions and long range competition. Born in the wide-open expanses of the west, this rifle is ideal for any situation where ranges may be long and weight is a concern.

Initially, this rifle will be offered in the cartridges listed below:

6.5 Creedmoor
26 Nosler
28 Nosler
300 Winchester Magnum
30 Nosler
33 Nosler

Notably less $$$ than the Weatherby Mark V Carbonmark that also just came out.
Well played, Nosler.

Of the cartridges available in this rifle, the 28 Nosler would make the best all around mountain rifle choice (IMO).

More than enough for mulies, caribou, black bears, goats and sheep, and still enough for moose, elk and grizzly bears.

And in a 7 lb rifle it is not going to beat you up without the use of a muzzle brake.

For sure. It’ll be a 9lb Rifle after decent mounts and optics.
