Template:Infobox firearm cartridge

The 33 Nosler is a 338 (.338”) caliber, rebated-rim centerfire rifle cartridge designed by Nosler. Introduced in October 2016, the 33 Nosler is a SAAMI approved and standardized cartridge.

The 33 Nosler is the fourth cartridge released by Nosler Inc. bearing the Nosler name.[1] The first was the .26 Nosler released in 2013, followed by the .28 Nosler released in 2015, and then the .30 Nosler released in early 2016. The 33 Nosler uses the popular .338 caliber bullet and is suitable for taking large and dangerous game. The 33 Nosler is a SAAMI standardized cartridge.

The 33 Nosler shares the same overall cartridge length (3.340”) as the 26 Nosler, 28 Nosler and 30 Nosler which allows it to be chambered in standard-length action firearms. All four of Nosler's Cartridges the .26 Nosler, .28 Nosler, .30 Nosler and the 33 Nosler are based on the same 404 Jeffrey parent case.

The name 33 Nosler refers to the first two digits in the caliber (0.338”) of the bullets that the cartridge fires and the name of the company which created it.

Performance

The 33 Nosler is capable of propelling a 225gr AccuBond at 3025 fps and the 265gr AccuBond Long Range at 2775 fps. That’s 275 fps faster and 20 percent more energy than the .338 Winchester Magnum using the same length action and 25fps faster than the 338 Lapua Magnum at the muzzle while burning 18 percent less powder.[2]
