Description
 
If you’ve ever hunted big game animals, such as Alaskan Grizzly Bears, you’ve likely shot the .338 Winchester Magnum rounds. Developed in 1958 by the Winchester Repeating Arms company, the .338 Winchester Magnum was created from experiments ran by Charles O’Neil, Elmer Keith, and Don Hopkins, the same trio that mated the .30-06 Springfield case with the .333” diameter bullets, resulting in the .333OKH.

Though the round had been wildcatted before Winchester brought it to the table, No one had the marketing abilities that Winchester had at the time, making them the perfect choice to bring it to the market. Essentially, they gave North American hunters the perfect round for big game, as well as African thin-skinned animals.

A round that knocked down even the biggest game with ease? What could be the drawback? For many shooters, it’s the recoil. Let’s compare with one of the most popular hunting rounds; the .30-06. The .30-06 has about 15 pounds of pressure on recoil while the .338 Winchester Magnum has at least 30 (more depending on the powder charge). While it is definitely not for the faint of heart, the recoil, alone, is not enough to keep the most avid big game hunters away from such a high performing round. After all, a one-shot, one-kill philosophy is the best way to hunt.



Each box contains 50 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer. It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
