Since its introduction in 2006, the 338 Federal caliber has established itself has an extremely versatile, high-performance big game cartridge. Built on the .308 case and “necked-up” to hold a .338 diameter bullet, this load offers hunters a faster muzzle velocity than the 308 Win. but with a heavier bullet. As a result, the short-action cartridge provides magnum energy for devastating performance on game, without magnum recoil.
Features & Benefits
