Noveske Rifleworks founder John Noveske dreamed of creating the perfect cartridge to run beautifully in his rifles—in particular creating a .300 AAC Blackout round that performs to John’s specifications. Those dreams are now a reality.
As a fan of the .300 Blackout, John worked with engineers at ammunition manufacturer Nosler to experiment with different bullet weights, cavity shapes and point styles to design a .300 AAC round that satisfied John’s desires for a bullet that performed reliably at subsonic speeds. The new round also penetrates deeply at 18 inches in ballistic gelatin and has controlled and reliable expansion. That round is the new Noveske, by Nosler, .300 AAC Blackout 220-grain round nose glow-in-the-dark polymer tip bullet. The AAC .300 Blackout round retains 93% of its weight and reaches velocities of 1,000 feet per second. For easy identification in no light or low-light situations, the Ballistic Glow Tip bullet will glow green after charged with either a flashlight or ambient light.
Each sleek-looking round is black nickel plated which provides smooth cycling, has a Noveske headstamp, is especially made to function flawlessly in semiautomatic rifles and is visually inspected before packaging. The Noveske by Nosler .300 Blackout ammo is also currently available at Cheaper Than Dirt! in Nosler’s 110-grain non-glowing Varmageddon flat base tipped bullet with 2,150 fps. Coming soon is 5.56mm NATO in 60-grain Ballistic Glow Tip and 55-grain Varmageddon, as well as 7.62×51 (.308) in 110-grain Varmageddon and 168-grain Ballistic Glow Tip.
John, a veteran and rifle-maker, started Noveske with the intention of creating the best barrel he could—one that performed just as well on a bolt-action sniper rifle as it did on a spotter’s M4. Noveske’s cold hammer-forged, machine-gun steel, heavy chrome-lined AR barrels produce less than one-inch group at 100 yards. The company’s AR-15 rifles and parts are some of the best in the business. The firearms industry and community lost John too soon on January 4, 2013 in a car accident.
