Re: 338 Norma Review By Ward W. Brien

Does anyone have any picture comparisons of noted rounds??? I know of the "old".338 Norma, same as the .358 Norma case, necked down, but this new version, has me scratching my head.

    That is a good question. It seems that they are close on performance.

    Since we are comparing the .338's and barrel life. How does the .338 RUM stack up? Does any one know what to expect for barrel life from it?

    Snipershide has a bit of info with powder you asked about.RL 22 82.5-84.2. A person that I spoke with that has worked w/several recommended Retumbo 88-91 w/300 smk, cci 250. I have been using that w/ fed 215, 300 hybrid, but had to back off. I am waiting for Hornady 285's. My rifle is lighter, I shot a 1'', and a 1 1/8'' @ 400 w/86.5 Retumbo, .005 off,v-2645.
