Nebraska-based Hornady is one of the country's foremost makers of premium bullets and ammunition. Many of the company's ammo components are used by other manufacturers due to their industry-leading quality.
Developed with contributions from a variety of American, British, and Finnish companies including Finnish ammo manufacturer Nammo Lapua Oy, the .338 Lapua Magnum is a powerful long range cartridge that has helped coalition snipers in Iraq and Afghanistan make record-setting long-range kills against Taliban and Al Qaeda fighters. It is also suitable for long range target shooting and virtually all game animals commonly hunted in the world today.
