The .338 Lapua Magnum cartridge, or .338 LM for short, is the ultimate centerfire 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 sport shooters and long range hunters. 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.
Lapua’s Lock Base bullet is a Lapua innovation which combines a full metal jacket and boat tail with a patented base design. This rifle bullet is suitable for mid-range and long range shooting and it has proven its worth in sport shooting arenas as well as military and law enforcement applications over time.
