Re: 338 norma reloading data

The trouble I have with RL 33 is finding it, I'd love to try it in my 338 Edge, 300 RUM and 338 Norma .
You'd think guys that work in gunshops would know a little , most sob's haven't even heard of it much less the 338 Norma Mag , had one fat bastard arguing with me and claiming there is no such thing as a 338 Norma Mag only a 308 and 358 Norma until I produced an empty case out of my coat pocket !

How does the Norma Mag compare to other 338s like the Lap and RUM?

Re: 338 norma reloading data

Ballistically really close in performance to the 338 Lapua... the Lapua has slightly higher velocity.. BUT ..
barrel manufacturer, cut or button rifling, 5C, 5R, length, twist, powder, bullets, primers etc., etc., all have a play in velocity results..

My reason for building one was I had an action with the proper boltface for the 338 Norma laying around and the Cartridge works very well in the AICS 338 cip mags
