An incredible cartridge for long range heavy use, the .338 Lapua is swiftly becoming a powerhouse for long term work in tactical and ultra large game hunting scenarios. Hornady Match ammunition is a premium .338 Lapua load that is among the top three loads for the cartridge, period.
Not only is it ridiculously accurate at obscenely long distances, the component quality control and the appearance of the cartridge itself is impressive. The amount of attention to detail that exists in the manufacture of this cartridge more than justifies it’s “average price” for the caliber. The brass is of exceptional quality and can easily be reloaded. Essentially every shooter who shoots .338 Lapua is a hand loader. Those that aren’t, aren’t playing around enough with the cartridge. But for those that just need something for the field or the range and want quality without overspending, these Hornady Match rounds are excellent.
Essentially these are factory handloads. The Boat tail Hollow point is suitable for game anywhere in the world, and the ballistics of the load are intense, without adding a premium to the mix. 2750 feet per second and 4755 ft. lbs. of energy at the muzzle makes this flat shooting, long distance, wind shedding load a powerhouse for dispatching any threat or any game anywhere.
