Re: 300 norma load info

Mike i had mine built using a 27 inch krieger 5R 1-10 twist, i only shot the 230 hybrids through it. I ended up using H1000. because i had lower es and sd`s with it. Vrlocity was 2970 sd was 7. It shot very well but i sold it to buy my DTA srs in 338 lapua and 260 rem. I will be getting a. 300 norma barrel for it in the near future via benchmark. The 300 norma is extremely accurate and efficient i think you will like it

Re: 300 norma load info

Excellent glad to hear it!
What powder charges were you running? I'd really like to hit 3100-3150 with the 215 hybrids. Barrel will be a 26" Rock.

Any foreseeable problems of trying to run it out of a factory hinged floorplate?

Re: 300 norma load info

I would start around 85 grains. I have no idea how it will feed out of a system like that, i ran mine through AI magazines. I would think if your feed rails on the action are opened to accomodate a lapua sized case you shouldnt have any problems with feeding??? Like i said i ran mine at 2970 with a 230 hybrid without loosening the primer pockets.

Thanks for the reply. This will be our first 300 Norma and if it works out like we hope it will, we should be building some pretty nice lightweight hunting rifles out of them... can't wait to start playing around with them a bit!

Re: 300 norma load info

It should work well in the bdl style magazine considering the relatively short 2.5" case length. You may want to add the 338 norma to the lineup as well???

Reamer is already sitting on the shelf awaiting some barrels...

Re: 300 norma load info

Just put together the new 300 Norma yesterday. Nothing too fancy, 27" Rock Creek Cut barrel 1:10" twist, Seekins muzzle brake, PTG Fluted bolt, Rem 700 action with action face and action lugs trued, B&C Medalist stock and factory new BDL bottom metal. This rifle got bumped up in the "to-built" line and while I have it in hand nearly complete, I got to wait on brass and dies (just got to bed it and open up a pinch point on the barrel channel). Can't find the brass in stock anywhere (Midway has 338 Norma in stock) so if anybody has a lead I'd appreciate it.

Mike
