26 Nosler 147 Grain Hornady ELD-M~ The 26 Nosler is designed as a modern 6.5mm cartridge, using recent advances in firearm technology to attain exceptionally high muzzle velocities (up to 3,400 ft/s (1,040 m/s)) and maintain an extremely flat trajectory. The overall cartridge length of 3.340 inches (84.8 mm) is the same as that of the .30-06 Springfield, allowing the use of widely available standard-length actions.
All four of Nosler’s Cartridges the .26 Nosler, .28 Nosler, .30 Nosler, and .33 Nosler are based on the same .404 Jeffery parent case. While the 26 and 28 Nosler share the same cartridge case dimensions, the 30 Nosler has a slightly shorter length to the shoulder dimension than the 26 and 28, and the 33 Nosler has a shorter shoulder dimension yet than that of the 30 Nosler.
Nosler claimed that the .26 Nosler was the most powerful commercial 6.5mm cartridge in the world, however since the release of the 6.5-300 Weatherby Magnum in 2016 it is the 2nd most powerful 6.5mm cartridge.
