The one and only – .338 Lapua Magnum

The .338 Lapua Magnum cartridge, or .338 Lapua Mag or .338 LM for short, is the ultimate centerfire rifle cartridge, purpose-built specifically for extremely long ranges. While the .338 LM round has a strong military reputation, it has been used increasingly by both long range hunters and sport shooters in disciplines such as ELR. When the sport shooting target is beyond 1 500 meters, the.338 Lapua Magnum is the first choice. And no matter what kind of game should be taken down at what distance – the choice is again .338 Lapua Mag.  The .338 Lapua Magnum has received a steady foothold in many Western armies and similar organizations. It is a combat-proven rifle round and provides incredible performance and precision in the critical role of military long range shooting.

The .338 Lapua Magnum cartridge comes factory loaded with five different bullets:
