I have shot 100 berger hybrids out of mine and have been waiting over a month for some more. I t is the bullet that I will be hunting with. I shot several 1'' @ 400 and 6'' at 1000.

Re: 338 Norma Review By Ward W. Brien

OK... I am just blown away!!!! I thought the Lapua was one of the best... After reading this and taking the limits of my brain bucket, I can't help but think that the Norma is a better choice. I was/ am in the process of building my first long range gun.... Started it a year ago and the builder took my money and just filed bankruptcy. So, now I have a fresh new look and can re-evaluate what I want. So, I guess the biggest question is, for a new guy, which round should I pick? I have not started reloading but I hope to soon.
Thanks for your thoughts in advance.

I have Three .338 Norma's; one of which I have up for sale. It has 385 rounds down the barrel and is virtually new. Do you have any interest? It is The Best Cartridge I have ever shot. No BS.

this is no joke. I had a lapua and Norma at the same time. Same action, stock barrels etc.. Rest assure the lapua was turned into another Norma. I have connected at 2520 yards with my 338 Norma and 300 bergers.
