338 Lapua Magnum Ammo

A powerful cartridge used for both military sniping and precision sporting, the .338 Lapua Magnum is one of the top choices for long-range shooting. It was introduced in 1989 by Nammo Lapua Oy, a Scandinavian defense contractor. Snipers using rifles from Sako, Accuracy International, and other manufacturers have set records for long-range kills using .338 Lapua ammo.

.338 Lapua ammo fires heavy bullets (200-250 grains) at a muzzle velocity of approximately 3,000 feet per second. This combination delivers particularly strong penetration and maintains excellent effectiveness at a distance. Match bullets are even heavier, weighing as much as 300 grains for improved extreme-range stability. The maximum effective range of this cartridge is about 1,900 yards.

.338 Lapua ammunition is capable of taking most large game when used with appropriate soft point or polymer-tipped projectiles. Like other magnum rifle cartridges, the .338 Lapua produces considerable recoil.
