Re: 338 Norma Review By Ward W. Brien

I've never heard that, but that doesn't mean it isn't thicker.
Here's all I find on the question, in this they list the Rim Diameter as "unknown" for the .338 NM and leave out the "thickness".. as well???? Yet they say the parent case is the .416 Rigby
Perhaps Ward might know.

Re: 338 Norma Review By Ward W. Brien

RCBS shows shell holder #37 to fit the 416 rigby and the 338 Lapua w/Norma brass and it is close but does not quite fit. There is another shell holder for 338 Lapua and 45-70 it is #14 but I'm not willing to pay 8 bucks to find out. Surely someone knows the correct shell holder.

That is the press shell holder. I'm looking for the trimmer shell holder

Precision Reloading: RCBS Trim Pro Case Trimmer Shellholder # 48

They list it is as #48 the same as the press holder. They claim its to keep it all in the same group. I looked on Midway but didn't see any listed. But I too would like to know which one to get cause i will be in need of one soon.

Re: 338 Norma Review By Ward W. Brien

My next rifle will be a 338 Norma. Might do it on a savage action. Might do it on a stiller. Depends on my work bonus and uncle sam. I know it will wear a nightforce and a McCree stock or maybe XLR industries. Any one using AI type mags with this?
