Not sure how available .338 Norna brass is down here but .338 RUM brass is actually cheaper than .300 RUM brass and is easy to obtain.

The .338 Norma is a bit exotic for me at this stage. I am going to stick with the .338 RUM. I think it will do everything that I want it to in a light rifle. I will find out in a couple of weeks.

That sound's like a great setup. What weight to you think it will work out at? Look forward to hearing how it works out and seeing how it shoots.

Re: New .338RUM pack rifle

Well the beast is ready and I pick her up tomorrow.

Very excited to see how it looks and shoots. Will make a fine light weight partner for for my heavy weight .338 Edge rifle.

The gunsmith said it has some stiff recoil, but that was just test firing for function without the weight of a scope and rings etc.

I will try and get some photo's up on the weekend.

Keep us updated. I am interested to hear how it shoots and what it weighs in at and what recoil pad you end up with. With the muzzle break I would have thought it wouldn't kick any harder than a 338WM
