Re: Question for Kevin Thomas re .338 Lap brass

Well...managed to contact a Sales Manager ( Ing. Karl-Heinz Goluch) for: Hirtenberger Defence Systems in Austria. He confirmed that the .338 Lap case in the picture with the "HP" headstamp is theirs. But, he's said that this was a strange situation as to his knowledge:

"yes, we had a .338 Lapua Magnum round with a 300gr. Match bullet in our cartridge program but we didnīt produce a lot of them. Just test and qualification rounds were produced till we closed down our small arms ammunition production in 2004."

He seems to think that the fact that I ran across a bulk bin of the unprimed brass was quite interesting given the above. How'd that end up in a little gun shop WA state? Anyway...little mystery solved. I'll have to quiz the owner at Kesselring's next time I'm down there. At the time I picked up this piece, they didn't seem to realize that there was more than just Lapua making .338 Lapua brass.

Interesting stuff. Better go buy some more of that head-stamped brass - they could be collector items. Take it to Antique Roads Show and see what they have to say!
