Re: 338 Norma Mag Build Decisions?

orkan,
The DTA SRS looks like a great system, very practical. The
338 Lapua mag would be the way to go for non-hand loaders
as there are much more factory options. I decided on the Norma
because I can stick with my 700 action and seat the 300s out with
out loading single shot like I was with my EDGE. Although I had the Norma
and Lapua on the balancing beam, it was a tough decision for
A while. I don't think you can go wrong either way.

    Rimfire,
    Thanks, going with a new bolt is clearly the best decision.

    It's important that I have a temp stable powder because in
    the winter it's gets in the low 20s then over 110 in the summer.

    I have the same plans for my rifle! Going to be running the 300
    Berger hybrids.

    Well went searching for some brass and no luck.
    Any body know where to find brass?

    Norma Brass | Brownells

    Best bet is to stick it on back order somewhere and wait. When a manufacturer does a run, all the distributors will get a chunk. If you are on the back order list, the closer you are to the top the sooner you'll get it.
