I read somewhere that Norma was designing a new 338 and would not be using the 300NM
as a parent case.
If this is true, you will have to find out the case head diameter of the 338 NM and refer to the
Gunsmith section of Long Range Hunting and look under bolt face diameters and com pair with
the Magnum bolt face of other cases,(534 Dia. is avg.).
Once you get the diameter if you are not sure just ask and I or some of the other members
