In the fall of 1946, a stubborn, mud-caked Canadian moose failed to go down, despite a well placed shot from John Nosler's 300 H&H. On the way home from that trip, John started thinking about a way to make a bullet that would perform well every time, no matter what the size of the game or the shot angle.
Over the next year, he experimented with bullet design, finally settling on a unique, dual core bullet that was really the first Partition®. The following fall, John and his friend, Clarence Purdie, both killed moose with one shot using John's new bullet. In 1948 the Nosler Partition Bullet Company was formed.
Over the years, many innovations and bullet designs followed including Solid Base®, Partition-HG™, Custom Competition™, AccuBond®, and the award-winning E-Tip®.
