Mason, man, you could have sent me one or two of them for field testing! We would have ran it a steady diet of 77 grain ammo.. Swear we would have taken care of it!

Very awesome Mason.. I think Nosler is going to do well with Noveske! Great looking rifle!

That new Nosler rifle looks good - in an AR kind of way! :grin:

For anyone who hasn't used one, the AR-15 type varmint rifles are amazingly easy to shoot well, and a ton of fun. I'd expect one sold by Nosler to be very good indeed.

I just looked at one at the Pro Shop in Bend and had a couple questions the staff could not answer.

1. Is chamber a NATO or Wylde?

2. What kind of rifling?

3. Contour and weight of barrel?

4. Is low profile gas block adjustible lilke LaRue OBR? (I shoot a suppressor so that is somewhat important).

The Noveske and Pacnor websites did not help clear things up any, as the Noveske 18 inch barrel is a 1-7 polygonal rather than 1-8 the Varmageddon has.

It is a good value despite seemingly high cost. A similar LaRue or Black Rain will cost $200 more and not have metallic sights included. So you are getting those for free.

Staff said 4 month wait. Faster than LaRue for sure.

Point taken, the staff should be able to answer those questions for the AR-15 enthusiast.
