338 Lapua Ammo

A powerful rifle cartridge used extensively by both military and sport shooters, .338 Lapua Magnum ammunition was developed by Scandinavian defense contractor Nammo Lapua Oy in 1989. It is used by snipers in the armed forces of dozens of countries (often with rifles from Sako or Accuracy International) due to its long-range performance. As of 2016, the record for the longest-ranged sniper kill is held by a British soldier who used an AI L115A3 rifle chambered in .338 Lapua to kill two Taliban machine gunners in Afghanistan.

.338 Lapua ammunition typically fires a heavy 200 or 250 grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of about 3,000 feet per second. Match bullets can reach 300 grains, further enhancing the projectile's long-range stability.

It's no surprise with these specs that .338 Lapua ammo is capable of taking just about any large game animal that walks the planet. Shooters using this formidable caliber, however, would be well-advised to invest in a quality recoil pad for their rifle!
