Just type in Nosler seconds on address bar. I read reports that shooters can't tell the difference between seconds and normal Noslers. I wonder what qualifies for seconds?

Sometimes it's just appearance. I got some Sierras a long time ago and they had a little extra lead attached to the nose of the bullet. Picked that off and they shot fine.

When I was 20yo I worked out of the GTE yard just down the street from Sierra Bullets in Santa Fe Springs and used to stop in there from time to time. I found out whenever they did a run of a certain caliber they would have seconds and sold them by the pound. They were a lot cheaper than the ones I bought at the gun shop I dealt with in Whittier so aftera while they were all I shot. Like A17 said, the Spitzers had a little rim of lead above the copper that was easily removed with the thumbnail and when that was done they all shot perfectly well. I weighed a lot of those bullets and they were at the right weight. Every now and then I'd find a bullet that was totally deformed and unusable but that was rare.When I bought the first batch of 52 gr BTHP seconds I couldn't see anything wrong with them. They all weighed out perfectly. Thinking back, the only thing I could think of is that they may have been slightly out of round. Even so, they shot just as well as the bullets I bought at the gun shop.

Those seconds are great deals and work very well. When I was an avid silhouette shooter I won more than a few championships useing Nosler seconds. Hornady seconds also....Walt

Keep checking those manufactures sites. Or contact them and ask them. I got a few thousand blemished bullets that came from Hornady just this last year. I didn't buy them directly from them but from someone who did.

Nosler says that they have cosmetic defects. I've been buying them for over 5 years and I started out weighing them all and trying to visually sort them but since I never found anything, I quit worrying about it and just shoot them.

Hornady has seconds but they won't ship them. Frank, where do you buy the Nosler seconds?

Nosler Shooter Proshophttp://www.shootersproshop.com/The only bad thing is that they are constantly out of stock. They only sell them when they build up a lot of blemished inventory.

I just received some nosler 2nds that had the wrong color tip. No big deal, I'm sure the animals won't notice...
