Re: 338 Norma Review By Ward W. Brien

If you use the same bullet and push it the same speed how can it be that much better?

It isn't if both rifles shoot well and are dialed in the bullet doesnt know what is was launched from.

On the other hand I have loaded for a few Lapuas in the past and I am on my second Norma. I can say it was much easier to get the two Normas dialed in with an accurate load and low es sd than the Lapuas. The Normas shot every load I put through them it is not a picky cartridge. I feel it is a well designed cartridge and easy to load for

Has RL 22 been working best for you guys? I see in the article between 83 & 85 Grains. Where have you noticed best accuracy with seating depth and powder combo w/ SMK's and GEN 2 Berger OTM's? I've been using H-1000 @ 88 Grains 24" Rock Creek w/ 1:9.3

Just wondering if you guys have found the nodes for this beast yet??

In both of mine I started at 12 thou off and I just left it. R-22 shot great and maxed out at 2750fps. Ramshot Magnum ran 2800 with the same accuracy so I left it. It consistently shoots in the 3's

H-1000 was insane accurate but only ran 2700 fps.

Re: 338 Norma Review By Ward W. Brien

The RL22 with the Federal 215M Primers work best at or above 8,000' ASL. The powder charge I use is 84.2 grains and I seat the 300 grain SMK's just touching the lands. "Just touching the lands" produces consistent pressures from one round to the next. This produces a slightly larger 1/8" group at 100 meters than my lighter load, however it is a laser beam downrange.
