Load data for caliber ".338 Blaser Mag"
The .338 Blaser Mag is a rifle cartridge developed by the German firearms manufacturer Blaser in 2008. It was designed as a high-powered cartridge for long-range hunting and shooting.

The cartridge is based on the .416 Rigby case, which was necked down to accept .338 caliber bullets. The resulting cartridge has a bullet diameter of .338 inches and a case length of 2.8 inches.

The .338 Blaser Mag is capable of firing bullets weighing between 200 and 300 grains at muzzle velocities ranging from 2,900 to 3,200 feet per second. It is a highly accurate cartridge that is favored by long-range hunters and shooters who need to take shots at extended ranges.

The cartridge has a flat trajectory and delivers a high amount of energy to the target, making it suitable for hunting large game animals, such as elk, moose, and brown bear. It is also used for long-range target shooting and has been used to set records in long-range shooting competitions.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
