338 Lapua Magnum 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.
