Built on the .308 case and necked-up to hold a .338 diameter bullet, this load offers hunters a faster muzzle velocity than the 308 Win. but with a heavier bullet. As a result, the short-action cartridge provides magnum energy without magnum recoil. Since its 2006 launch, the .338 Fed. caliber has become know for its versatility and high-performance on big game.
