The .338 Ruger Compact Magnum or .338 RCM is a rimless, short-length rifle cartridge based on the .375 Ruger case. It was designed by Sturm Ruger and Hornady and released in 2008 and chambered in various Ruger rifles.
The .338 Ruger Compact Magnum uses a unique case designed by Hornady and Ruger based on the powerful .375 Ruger cartridge. The fact is of a rimless design having the base and rim diameter of .532 in (13.5 mm), which is the same diameter of the belt on belted magnum cases based on the .300 H&H Magnum and .375 H&H Magnum.
This allows the cartridge to have a higher case capacity than a belted magnum case given cases of equal length. As Ruger intended the round to be chambered in short distance bolt-action rifles, the case length was shortened to 2.10 in (53 mm), which is similar to the .308 Winchester case.
