A smith you would be well advised (by Jimmy Sloan) to consider for a 338 NM build is the one Jimmy did the devlopment with, Mike at Mike's Gun Sales and Service.

I also think it's interesting that the 338 Norma Mag seems to be driving sales for quite a few gunsmiths yet I haven't heard of much interest commercially. Load data is non existent with the exception of Norma powders.

Edit: I see on Bruno's site where they're offering the Elite Hunter in .338 too. Thanks

Re: 338 Norma Mag Build Decisions?

Gave Mikes Gun Sales a call no answer yet. Also talked to the guys at Schneider and the wait time is about 8 weeks which is fine. I'm going to order a barrel when I decide what contour I need to go with. My current barrel is Sendaro contour at 30 in with flutes. I would like to keep the same barrel weight or slightly heavier at 26 in with no flutes, can anyone tell me what contour or custom contour would be closest to this.
(yes I changed my mind from 30in to 26in now )

PAC-NOR has a barrel weight calculator at PAC-NOR Barreling, Inc. - Barrel Contours

You might also find the barrel weight info on Kriegerís site helpful - Contours

Re: 338 Norma Mag Build Decisions?

Well I was just about ready to pull the trigger on this, but plans have changed for the better. I recently purchased a 338 Allen Mag from a forum member so the Norma will have to wait and I'm goin to keep my EDGE as it is.
