Re: How to build a 338 Norma
No problem with the .338 Norma magnum in a Remington 700 action.
Remington has the Police model in .338Lapua, it has the bolt face opened up and I think they fit a Sako type extractor also.
You could do the same with your donor rifle or just sell it and buy a Remington 700 Police in .338Lapua to get the good Lapua brass.
I shoot a .338 Edge and find that if you sort Remington brass and chuck out the odd bad one, the rest are good enough for me.
With the .338Edge you can easy get 2750 to 2800 fps with 300gn SMK and mild loads. The Remington brass will then last a lot longer.
There are a lot of options for you to choose from.
