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...

If those animals can spot the tip color coming at them they deserve a free pass. :D
