Winchester .338 Lapua Ammunition

    Winchester 338 Lapua

    Winchester Ammunition introduced two new loads for the .338 Lapua cartridge this year.  One is a competition cartridge, while the second is designed for large game hunting.

    The first load uses a 250 grain boattail hollowpoint (BTHP) for a high degree of accuracy in long range shooting competitions.

    The second load uses a 300 grain Accubond CT bullet for deep penetration and good expansion in larger game.  According to Winchester Ammunition, this round is excellent on deer, elk and brown bear in the plains and mountain regions.
