Re: Re-chambering .358 Norma Mag to .358 STA
I'm taking a .35 Whelen as my back-up rifle to Newfoundland this fall on my moose hunt. Was hoping for something with a little more oomph. My primary is a .375RUM (that I deer hunt with every year using 270gr hornady soft points) and I enjoy shooting it.
I guess for me oddball calibers are just like potato chips, you can't have just one. Having a .358Norma Mag would be great (and it's on my list of calibers to own), but it's lower on my list than the .358STA
By the way, my user name "Deathray7" refers to my 7mmSTW that I've owned for years. So I'm a huge STE/STW/STA fan. I've even toyed with the idea of a 9.3STDG (Shooting Times Dangerous Game). There are some great bullets out there for the 9.3mm crowd with extremely high sectional densities.
Back to the .375RUM; I would love to see some kind of high-ballistic coefficient match type bullets for this caliber (along the lines of the .388 300gr SMK)
