Re: 30/338 Norma Mag

What kind of velocities are expected of this cartridge? I am aware of the parent pushing 300 smk's to 2750 and 250smk's to 3050, I should think it'd push the 220-240 smk's to 3200 in a long tube? W/ the 240's excellent BC, that'd make for one hell of a longrange .308 cal round

I do believe Nate was pushing a 210 around 3200fps.

The 200gr 7mm is what I am after!!

Re: 30/338 Norma Mag

About all I can find out is that the 30/338 Norma mag is the same cartrige as the
300 NM,338NM and the 375NM it does not have a belt like the 308 NM and the358NM
so it would have more case capicity than the 308 NM or the 358NM.

There is not a lot of information on these new cartriges. It looks like Norma has bumped
up there new line by removing the belt.

If you have access to the reamer it can be compaired to the 30/338 win or 308 Norma Mag
reamers to get a general size increase.
