im Starting the search for my next rifle and Iíve kinda iinterested in the nosler 26 or 28. Iím not sure where they would fit in with what I already have. Iím currently shooting 6mm 308 and 300wm but I have narrowed it down the a new Christensen rifle but havenít picked out a caliber. What are the real world opinions on the nosler 26 and nosler 28?

I went with the 28 myself with the new heavy bullets in mind and have not been disappointed.
It shoots the 195 and the 197gr better than I really expected.

28...had a 26 for 3 months...sold it to a friend...it shot lights out--went back to my 257 WBY, 6.5-284, and 264 win...didn't see what all the extra bark was for. Saying that I'm not a 7mm fan--but those are the choices--- now the 33 nosler me like....

So the nosler 28 is close to the 7mm?

The 28 Nosler is a 7mm, basically it is a 7mm mag with a little more powder room with the corresponding velocity increase and no belt.

The 26 Nosler is to the 264 Win Mag what the 28 Nosler is to the 7mm Remington Mag.

26 Nosler necked from .264 to .284 inches makes it a 28 Nosler
264 Win Mag necked from .264 to .284 inches makes it a 7mm Rem Mag.

If you are asking questions like this, I think you might be wasting your money. Have you done your research and made an objective decision that spending the extra money on a boutique round is worth it to accomplish your specific goals... or do you just want a Nosler round because it sounds cool?

Not really stuck on a particular round I just know I want to buy a Christensen rifle and seen they have the nosler rounds and started looking at the load data nosler has on their website and it got me interested. So Iím not following the new hot round on the market. I donít typically buy into the newest latest craze but have heard some peopleís opinons on it and sounded promising

Also, look into the Christensen rifle quality. I have shot some of their rifles that were VERY accurate. I have also shot some of their $8K+ rifles that I wouldn't give you $100 for. And when you send the rifle back to them, they give you the run around about "accuracy guarantee" of this and that. I'll never own one, for sure. I also don't like bad mouthing a company on-line either. But when a customer of mine spends $8K on a dream rifle, and it shoots as bad as it did, and they treat my customer as poor as they did, I have no problem voicing my opinion.

If you want a carbon barrel, look into the Proof barrels. Their system of carbon wrapping barrels is much better and more consistent.

or just do a semi custom for the same price from someone reputable that can help you choose a caliber based on your needs rather than if it sounds cool or not.

I shot my buddies ridgeline in 6.5cm and it was very accurate and a good feeling rifle.
