New for 2015, Black Hills Ammunition is introducing a .338 load utilizing the 250 grain Nosler AccuBond™ bullet.
The .338 Lapua is the King Kong of long range precision rifles, but until now has been handicapped by a lack of premium performance ammunition specifically designed for big game hunting. Black Hills Ammunition is now introducing a load utilizing the 250 grain Nosler AccuBond™ bullet. This load was designed to fit and function even in the rifles with a max load length of 3.6”, to ensure proper fit in all rifle magazines. The 250 grain bullet was chosen for optimum accuracy performance in all standard rifling twists. With a velocity of 2850 fps, a muzzle energy of over 4500 Ft lbs, and the attention to detail you have come to expect from Black Hills, a true big game load is now available for your .338 Lapua.

For 2015, Black
Hills has added a .308 loading in the extremely popular 168 grain bullet weight.
Last year Sierra and Black Hills Ammunition teamed to offer a significant step forward in ballistics with the introduction of the .308 Tipped MatchKing (TMK) design. For 2015, Black Hills has added a loading in the extremely popular 168 grain bullet weight. The 168 grain is the traditional standard for 308 match and police sniper ammunition. This new projectile in Black Hills ammunition increases the ballistic coefficient (BC) of the bullet from .462 to .535. The effect is higher retained velocity, flatter trajectory, and increased wind performance. The TMK design is also a tremendous improvement of the original MatchKing projectile when used as a law enforcement sniping round, with increased reliability of on-target performance.
