Factory new Starline unprimed 338 Federal (338-08) brass, 50 shell cases per bag.
Unit price .64 cents each.
History: One of the newest members of the .308 Winchester family, the .338 Federal was introduced in 2006 by Federal and Sako. It is capable of acheiving the same muzzle energy as some magnum calibers with less recoil. It also fits in standard length short action rifles and AR-10’s without sacrificing magazine capacity.
Case mouths MAY not be perfectly round from the manufacturing process, this can be corrected by running brass through the size die (always recommended) prior to loading. Residue from the annealing process may leave a stain on the case neck that can be removed by tumbling. Annealing involves rapid heating then cooling to impart the shell cases with the proper hardness to securely hold bullets in place and provides flexibility to expand and contract through multiple firings.
