Badland Precision .338 Lapua AI

The .338 Lapua Magnum was developed in the 1980’s as a high powered, long range military sniper rifle. It filled the gap between the weapons chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO and large heavy rifles like the .50 BMG. It quickly proved itself as an effective sniper caliber and in November of 2009 Corporal of Horse (CoH) Craig Harrison recorded the longest snipe kill of 2,707 yards. In his reports, CoH Harrison described the environmental conditions perfect for long range shooting.

In April 2012 a special forces sniper from the Australian 2nd Commando Regiment recorded a kill at 3,079 yards with a 12.7mm MP NM140F2. Then in May 2017 Canadian sniper Sean Quinn of the Joint Task Force 2 recorded a kill at 3,871 yards with a .50 BMG McMillian Tac-50.

The .338 Lapua Ackley Improved was made for Badland Precision as they are testing one of our new brass alloys to see how it holds up under pressure. We did a customized headstamp and recently shipped them their cartridges. We don’t have any ballistics to report at this time, but we will publish that data as soon as we have it.

Roberson Cartridge Company is a custom manufacture of Vintage, Obsolete, Hard to Find and Wildcat calibers.
