Norma is now making RUM brass?!?!

7 mm Remington Ultra Magnum | Norma Precision - ammunition

Just saw this on Normas website. Not sure if its been out for a while and i over looked it or what, but as soon as i can find some of the Norma 7mm RUM brass im ordering it! Should be no prob to neck it up to .300rum. Headstamps dont bother me. Worse case, i will just order loaded ammo and pull the bullets. Unless for some reason they will be using a different manufacturers brass?

Re: Norma is now making RUM brass?!?!

Very cool!!! Not sure I'm interested in necking it up to my 300 rum, but I'm stoked to see more "RUM" brass offerings. Are you listening Lapua!!!!???? Beat Norma to market w/ 300 RUM brass and you'll sell it......I promise!!

Re: Norma is now making RUM brass?!?!

Seriously, geeze, Lapua brass for the 300rum, 338rum, and 338edge. How nice would it be to have brass that lasted more than 5-6 firings. I wonder how much of a pain it would be or if its even possible to make rum brass from Normas 404Jeffery brass?

Re: Norma is now making RUM brass?!?!

Cases or loaded rounds??

Is it generally accepted that Norma brass is better than Remmy?

If unprimed cases are available it may well be the ticket for the 270 AM

As far as I can tell, loaded ammo only. But if they are forming brass for loaded ammo than we might soon see unprimed brass. Honestly I have had good luck with Remington brass as far as durability goes. But uniformity on the other hand is a crap shoot!

Re: Norma is now making RUM brass?!?!

Hate to disappoint everyone, but the link Camshaft provided doesn't take you to a listing of ammunition calibers Norma loads. It is simply a listing of calibers that they provide reloading data for on their website.

I looked at all of their ammo lines and didn't see the 7mm RUM listed as an offering nor any of the other RUMs. The page you linked is under the Reloading section of their website and not the ammunition portion which is broken down into two divisions - Hunting and Target with further subdivisions within these.

They may come out with ammo and brass for the RUMs at some point but nothing on their website indicates that they have or will any time soon.
