Re: .338 Norma, any info?
Unfortunately that is about the most comprehensive read on that caliber I have found. I found it to be very informative though. I like the idea of a cartridge that can keep up with the RUM, Edge, and Lapua in a tighter package. If I should go to a bigger caliber, it will more than likely be the 338 Norma. The ballistics that I want are there. With the coming of higher BC 338 bullets being produced, it will be a real cannon. One thing to remember is that this rifle is doing it with a shorter bore than most of the big rifles. They are generally fit with 28 to 30 inch barrels. The Norma according to the author of the article said a 23.5" to 25" bore is optimum.
