For 2018, Nosler has introduced its new M48 Long Range Carbon rifle, which combines the company’s M48 Long Range model with a 26-inch carbon fiber-wrapped, match-grade barrel from Proof Research.

According to the presser, the addition of the Proof carbon fiber-wrapped barrel helps reduce the rifle’s overall weight to seven pounds, down from 7.8 pounds in the standard M48 Long Range. The barrel also boosts shooting accuracy, as it’s touted as being stiffer and capable of dissipating heat at a faster rate than traditional stainless steel barrels. The barrel is mated to a M48 receiver and bedded in a MCS-T carbon fiber stock.

Available in 6.5 Creedmoor, 26 Nosler, 28 Nosler, 300 Winchester Magnum, 30 Nosler, 33 Nosler, the M48 Long Range Carbon is designed for mountain hunting, backcountry treks and long range competition. It’s overall length is 48 inches and it features a metal sniper grey Cerakote finish. The magazine capacity is four rounds in 6.5 Creedmoor and three rounds in all other options. MSRP: $2,995.
