Partition® 30 Caliber 150 Grain Bullet (50ct)
Minimum Velocity: 1800 fps
Maximum Velocity: Unlimited
1. Nosler Engineering
Nosler's special lead-alloy, dual-core provides superior mushrooming characteristics at virtually all impact velocities.
2. Fully Tapered Copper-Alloy Jacket
Ruptures instantly at the thin jacket mouth, yet the gradual thickening along the bullet's axis controls expansion and curls the jacket uniformly outward at high and low velocities.
3. Nosler's Integral Partition
Supports the expanded mushroom and retains the rear lead-alloy core. The enclosed rear core retains more than two-thirds of the original bullet weight for deep penetration.
4. Dual-Core Construction
Every Partition® bullet in the Nosler® line delivers optimum length, weight, and ogive design for maximum in-flight and terminal performance.
5. Special Crimp Locks
Adds strength to resist deformation under the pressure of heavy magnums.

Over 40 years hunting with this bullet and nothing beats it for accuracy or performance.Review by MarineBoar / (Posted on 11/30/2018)I started hunting with my Dad when I was about 4 years old and shooting on my own since I was 5 yrs old. I'm turning 69 yrs old in a month or so. Served 10 yrs active duty USMC in the infantry, got some ribbons in Vietnam, shot on a Base team, hunted various critters across the Western US and tried a lot of different ammo types... Some worked and some didn't work so well. The biggest thing I've learned about hunting is that the possibly one shot you may get on a hunt is not the place to scrimp on costs.
I've been reloading and shooting the 150 gr .308 Nosler Partition in my 30-06 A3-03 sporter since 1975. It chrono's at 2880 fps and holds 0.5 moa (5 shot groups) if I do my part. The handload also works well in my son's Mauser w/ Douglas barrel as well. Most deer just flop over or drop when shot. It's also potent on feral hogs (largest to date apx. 340 lbs.) Worked well on long shots in Az, Ca and Central Texas; and, it's even better on closer shots in East Texas pastures and woods. Yes, I've tied the 'other' premium bullets; but, I haven't been able to get the same accuracy and velocities I do with the Partitions. I have another good handload worked up with the 180 gr Partition; but, I haven't run across anything in the past 40-odd years that the 150 gr Partition won't handle. I get to stalk hunt the hogs at night here year round. (It's legal in Texas.) I beginning to suspect that I probably won't see a better bullet for hunting deer and hogs this lifetime. :)
