I Have both the Sierra Matching 338 300 Grain and the new Berger Match Tactical Hybrid also in 300 grain in stock and I ship plenty to Australia. Both are fantastic bullets, you can't go wrong with either. I'm assuming you are shooting a Lapua Mag, Edge or something similar. Go big or go home

Re: 338 long range bullets

I have used 250 & 300 SMKs with several 338s. I shot some of the gen 1 300 grain burgers with good results as long as I did not push them too fast. That problem seems to fixed with the gen 2s. I just have not gotten around to ordering any yet. One of the guys on this site has been having great results with Cutting Edge bullets, both the 225s and 252s. I have some of both but have not had a chance to load any yet.

7mm, check out Shawn Carlock's new post over in "long range hunting and shooting". It sure look like the gen 2 300 grain Bergers are the real deal.

Re: 338 long range bullets

If you can get em' the 300 grain Bergers are the way to go. I use the SMK's out of my Rum simply because the Bergers are to hard to get up here (Canada). If you have the coin I would look hard into the cutting edge line of bullets in the 225 range as you can push them between 3200-3300 fps with a really good B.C.
