I really dig nugget hops.
I make an american amber ale (amber nugget ale)with almost exclusively nugget. It's in the pulldown under my name if you wanna check it out. It's not hopbursted though. 60,20,10,0 additions. I think there are 7 oz total (6 nugget, 1 centennial) for 11 gal recipe, so your 3 oz should be a good amount for a 5 gal batch. I have never tried hop bursting, but I don't see how you could go wrong w/ nugget in that manner.
I have pretty much made that grain bill my "house amber" while switching up the hops. This last batch of it, I used nugget for the bittering addition and a Cascade and Willamette combo for the rest using cascades grown by my uncle. It turned out very nice too, although it's still too early to tell which I liked more.
I will tell you this... my next batch is gonna be a rye ipa with nugget and challenger hops.
Anyway- report back with whatever you do, as I am interested!
