Re: 300 Norma Mag

I have had a 308 Norma Mag rifle since the 60s. Never have heard about the 300 Norma Mag. How are they different??

308 Norma is a long neck 300 WM, .532" rim and the 300 Norma is based off the 338 Lapua diameter case.

Have you had any experience with Surgeon rifles?

Thanks

Re: 300 Norma Mag

I have my own action made for me by Stiller so I don't use their actions. But yes I know them well. Our paths cross in other endeavors. Good bunch. No worries.

Re: 300 Norma Mag

I predict a .300 Norma Magnum barrel that starts out shooting 1/4 MOA at 100 yards and 3/4 MOA at 1000 yards will do that for no more than 600 rounds. Maybe 700 if one's lucky. That's a way, way over bore cartridge.

If so I would not be interested, kinda hard to get away from 300WM for me, however that 30-375 Ruger is interesting & may not be too much of a good thing.

Re: 300 Norma Mag

If you know how to manage carbon fouling and heat checking you can expect 900 good rounds out of the 300 Norma. The 30-375 is a better balanced round. By that I mean you get enough of a boost in velocity over the 300WM without increasing recoil much, as well as shortening barrel the life. It works with a .523 bolt face VS the need for a custom action for a 300 Norma. It works very well with heavy bullets. I've shot it out to 2K. With that being said there are no free lunches.
