It’s almost hard to believe that such a powerful and stout cartridge as this .338 Winchester Magnum is the beginning point for the medium bore cartridges. With the amount of small caliber ammunition, we shoot, this stuff seemingly offers so much more power, and yet, it’s just the starting point for the truly dangerous game all around the world. That said, this is a popular Bear round in Alaska and other northern states in the USA. It is considered quite a well-heeled round for animals that need to be dispatched immediately. Many guides will use it as a backup gun because of its versatility and power, that can still be wielded in a smaller, lighter rifle.
