Anyone own one? Likes? Dislikes? Would you buy another?


My biggest fear is when I die my wife will sell my guns for what I told her they cost.

The action is a Howa. I do not know whose barrel they use.

After two weeks of trying to order one I gave up. Emailed Nosler three times, no response back. Called and left two voice mails and same response, nothing.
Must be a sign I didn’t need it to begin with Smiler.

Not too different from my experience, except they already had my money.

They make good bullets.

Their ammo is pretty good.

They really need to work on the gun side of the business if they want to keep it. It bugs the everloving daylights out of me that the gun writers can get things sent and fixed within days... the rest of us, forget about it.

Very pricey for a factory specialty pistol.
They typically shoot good.
You can build custom XP of your choice for the same price

Full disclosure here. Today received a long and detailed message on my answering machine. All my questions were answered.
Took them awhile, but they finally responded. Just not sure if I want to order one.

Is it what you want for the price range that you know is comparable, if you were comparing apples with apples?

I think I'll wait until I see their Independence model for sale. Its the same basic handgun without the option to pick colors for about $800 less.

Gunbrokers is flooded with the Independence model in 6.5 Creedmoor, roughly $1500 selling cost. But I just can’t convince myself to buy one due to the advertised weight of 6.5 pounds. Add a scope, rings, mount and sling and it’s at 8 pounds. I own rifles that are scoped and weigh less.

I shot and hunted with a friend's Nosler in 6.5 Needmore. I thought the gun was on the ugly side. It was very accurate, but the Needmore round in a handgun is on the pathetic side. Most groundhogs ran a ways, and deer definitely ran a ways. Used 120 BTs which work excellent in my 6.5/.284 XP.
Bad shots by me??? Don't think so. I've taken 13,981 groundhogs and 2513 deer with handguns.
I'll stick with my XPs.
