Federal Premium .338 Lapua Magnum headstamp question


#1

Does anyone know if the current production of Federal Premium .338 Lapua Magnum loaded with the 250gr (Federal catalog # GM338LM) or 300gr (Federal catalog # GM338LM2) Sierra MatchKing Boat-Tail Hollow Point bullets have dated (last 2 digits of the year) headstamps?

Thanks,

Brian

Brian, the latest GM338LM cartridges I have seen came loaded using Lapua brass (single cartridges can be recognized by the presence of blue primer sealant), and GM338LM using Federal brass. I assume that Lapua brass was used until they manufactured their own, so it is likely that both loads are currently loaded using FC brass.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Fede
