338 M&K

  

The 338 M&K (Metsästys & Kalastus, or Hunting and Fishing) was designed by Finnish gunsmith Hannees Kamulta who is the owner of Hunting and Fishing magazine in Finland, hence the name of the cartridge. It is based on the 8.2x53R Finnish case, which in turn is based on the 7.62x54R Moisin Nagant case. As far as could be ascertained, a single batch was made by Sako in 2004.
