.338 Lapua Magnum 250 grain Berger Elite Hunter~ The .338 Lapua Magnum is a rimless, bottlenecked, centerfire rifle cartridge. It was developed during the 1980s as a high-powered, long-range cartridge for military snipers. It was used in the Afghanistan war and the Iraq war. As a result of this, it became more widely available. It can penetrate better-than-standard military body armour at ranges up to 1,000 metres (1,090 yd) and has a maximum effective range of about 1,750 metres.
Not only is it a combat proven round, it is increasingly used by big game hunters and civilian long range shooting enthusiasts.

The Elite Hunter bullets are not limited to SAAMI standards, so they have much longer noses than the Classic Hunter bullets to provide hunters with the highest ballistic performance possible.
