I am unaware of any published data regarding the wall thickness except for at the neck and rim. This is why reloading data sources always caution about maximum loads as the wall thickness will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer thus affecting the internal volume of the case and thereby the pressure. Here are the SAAMI cartridge and chamber specifications for the .338 (8.6mm) Lapua Magnum:
