I have a 338 in a m77 and it loves the Federal Premium's in 250 gr Nosler's. They are pricy though!

.50-70 The only Government I trust.

Re: Ammo for 338 Win mag

I have two buddies that have 338's. One has the ruger model 77 and the other has a tikka T3. The ruger shoots almost anything good but the T3 is a little more picky. They both shoot Federal 250gr very well. I worked up a reload for them that they both shoot very well also. It duplicates the Federal 250gr.

The 210 gr Nosler shoots very well from my Browning A-Bolt

Had an old friend who shot a boxcar load of elk with the 210 NPs in the .338.....

Re: Ammo for 338 Win mag

I would think that partition would be about perfect..I'm not sure how fast you could drive one out of that little case without blowing the pressure skyward but it would still take out any animal in the state you could hit with it.
