Loaded into premium brass, the finished cartridges are designed to perform under a variety of conditions.
This Berger .338 Lapua Ammo has a 300-grain bullet instead of their 250 grain, gaining a higher ballistic coefficient (BC) while sacrificing some velocity. The bullet has the hybrid ogive developed by Berger using their J4 Precision Hunting Jackets. They penetrate approximately 2 to 3 inches before their rapid expansion that transfers the energy into the animal. The muzzle velocity is 2,725 feet per second (fps), and at 500 yards they’re traveling with 2,200 fps and hitting with 3,225 ft. lbs. of energy. If you’re looking for a round that’s designed around long-range hunting, you’ve found it.

Features of Berger Elite Hunter .338 Lapua Magnum 300 grain Elite Hunter Brass Cased Centerfire Rifle Ammunition:
Hybrid Ogives blend the best aspects of tangent and secant nose shapes into one ogive. Near the bearing surface, the shape starts off as a tangent, which makes it easy to tune, then transitions to a secant ogive, which results in a flatter trajectory and less wind drift.
Consistent Core: Exacting core manufacturing process is one of the reasons when you buy a box of Berger, you don’t have to worry about sorting by weight. This gives you more reliable drop, consistent BC, and better accuracy.
Boat Tail bullets provide an aerodynamic advantage at longer ranges over their flat base counterparts, especially while transitioning from transonic to subsonic velocities.
J4 Precision Bullet Jackets are the #1 choice of custom bullet manufacturers. They are the most consistent and concentric copper jackets in the world holding an unprecedented +/- .0003″ tolerance. J4 hunting jackets are produced slightly thinner to allow for 2-3″ of penetration before rapidly expanding, producing extreme hydrostatic shock and a massive wound cavity.
