Hammer Bullets™ are turned on a CNC lathe and use a unique solid copper blend that is designed for maximum terminal performance. Each bullet is weighed and micrometer measured as it is produced. The result is an incredibly consistent product with unparalleled quality control. The hollow point design, initiates expansion upon impact, shedding petals immediately, with the remainder of the bullet staying intact with a blunt front for optimal wound channel. All Hammer Custom Bullets are designed to optimize Weatherby’s flat shooting cartridges.

10 reviews for 338-378 Weatherby Magnum

  1. Swedish shooter

    This is without a doubt the most killing caliber in the Wetherby line up, I’ve shot over 40+ Elk, 3 moose, 2 sheep, countless deer and Antalope with my Accumark and not one has taken 3 steps yet. With the lite bullets for deer and Antelope here in Wyoming, flat shooting Lazer accuracy. Ya it’s a big gun, but killing power trumps looking for wounded animals every day. 210 grain Scirocco and H1000 are a killing combo.

  2. Mike

    Bought the Accumark Elite in 338-378 Weatherby about 8 months ago. I topped it with a NightForce SHV 5-20×56 and propped it with a Harris Bipod. I ordered 2 boxes of 225 Gr TTSX. Finally got to take it the range and get set up for deer and hog season. Bore sight had me within 2 inches at 30 yds. Lined it up and put the next 3 shots through the same hole. Stepped out to 100 and adjusted for 2 inches high. The next 6 shots were laser accurate. This rifle is a pleasure to shoot. Recoil isn’t bad at all. It’s more of a push and less of a punch. Smooth action, clean crisp trigger, and VERY accurate. The airblast quickly becomes the talk of everyone nearby! Don’t leave loose papers on the shooting table and certainly don’t shoot prone with the brake anywhere near the ground. Disclaimer… I love a rifle with solid kick. My instinct says that if you remove the brake, this one will absolutely rock you.

  3. Jim Eisenhart

    Outstanding weapon! Bought mine in 2007 for a brown bear hunt on the Alaska Peninsula. First shot – Kill. 10’x10′. Acceleration is easily manageable with muzzle break and pad. Use it now for mule deer and elk in Colorado. I think you hear alot of other hunters doing there best to justify their decision not to buy the best…when secretly, they would rather have this rifle in this calibre! But I’m like my Canadian friends…just wish the ammo was more available! How do we make that happen?

  4. Ed Moeglein

    Very accurate round thru my Mark V 225grn Zero @ 300 yds, 3 shots you an cover with a quarter!
    Wish the ammunition was available, I sure would do a lot more shooting.
    Saving my last 2 boxes for Hunting.

  5. T

    people often ask why I need a caliber so big. They ask what I plan on shooting with it. My answer is simple. Whatever I want at whatever distance I want. Great round. A true talking point as well.

  6. The duke

    I fell in love with this caliber after owning a true. 378. More power than necessary, but performance to match. Would give 6 stars if I could.

  7. jeff50jd

    Very good ammo in my Accumark. The 250 grain Nosler Partition as accurate and make a awesome job on big game. I shoot 3 big moose’s and all 3 stop right there, same thing on black bear. Like the other comment I just wish the ammunition was more attainable here in Canada

  8. Westward

    As a gunsmith, firearms dealer, and long range rifle builder of over 40 years, it is a pleasure to report our extensive field testing of the .338-.378 Wby Mag factory loads. Our rifle is an Unlimited Class 18 pound engineering masterpiece with 28 match barrel and PTG muzzle brake. We are consistently keeping this high performance shooter under 1/2 MOA throughout the full extreme ranges here in Western Washington. Job well done. And if you would like to try your skills at over 1/2 mile, this is THE caliber.

  9. huntin howie

    Awesome up to 1500 yds. for bear, moose, elk, and more

  10. RHINOPENN

    I have owned a mark V in this caliber for over 5yrs now, extremely happy with its performance here in northern BC Canada. It has anchored the biggest game we have here. From Bear,Moose,Elk. Out beyond 1100yrds. I just wish the ammunition was more attainable here in Canada.
