Federal Premium Vital-Shok Nosler Partition, .338 Winchester Magnum, NP, 250 Grain, 20 Rounds is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Richard R from Best load for my Ruger MK2My Ruger MK2 is like trying to feed a kid liver, very picky! When I bought it I tried every ammo commercially made in 200gr thru 225gr and could never shoot MOA. The idea of having a 250 yd elk rifle just seemed wrong so I continually searched reviews. One day I read a review for the Nosler 250gr partition in a MK2 and ordered a box. I set up at 100yds off sandbags and the first shot was 1" left and 1" low. The next two shots were 1" left and 1"low and all 3 holes touching. 4 clicks right and up on a new turret scope and I finally had my 500-yard elk rifle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PaPaKC from Great ballistics. Luv it ! !Admitting my bias - I like Federal. It may be emotionally based such as others' Ford-vs-Chev, but I like Federal rounds.This .338 round covers everything from our Midwestern whitetails [sure, a bit of an overkill] on up in North America, as well as most of the rest of the hunting world.If one has a rifle chambered in .338, this is the way to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharkey from Great roundI have used this round in my Ruger M77 for nearly 20 years now. I have killed moose, deer and bear at ranges up to 500 yards using a Bushnell Scopechief VI with the bullet drop compensator. All have been 1 shot kills with little or no tracking. My groups are 1.5 inches at 200 yards using a solid rest which is more than adequate for large game. I tried every available bullet weight and found that the 250 grain works best but It's very hard to find in Canada. Love the ammo and keep up the great work Federal.
