.338 Lapua Magnum 250 Grain Nosler Partition~ The .338 Lapua Magnum (8.6×70mm or 8.58×70mm) 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 wart and the Iraq war. As a result of this, it became more widely available. The loaded cartridge is 14.93 mm (0.588 in) in diameter (rim) and 93.5 mm (3.68 in) long. 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

The Nosler Partition bullet has earned it’s respect with the following characteristics
1 Nosler Engineering
Nosler’s special lead-alloy, dual-core provides superior mushrooming characteristics at virtually all impact velocities.
2 Fully Tapered Copper-Alloy Jacket
Ruptures instantly at the thin jacket mouth, yet the gradual thickening along the bullet’s axis controls expansion and curls the jacket uniformly outward at high and low velocities.
3 Nosler’s Integral Partition
Supports the expanded mushroom and retains the rear lead-alloy core. The enclosed rear core retains more than two-thirds of the original bullet weight for deep penetration.
4 Dual-Core Construction
Every Partition® bullet in the Nosler line delivers optimum length, weight and ogive design for maximum in-flight and terminal performance.
