Re: 338 Norma Review By Ward W. Brien

The .338 Norma is about efficiency, short and long range accuracy, (long range being 1 mile); energy on target, barrel life, and action choice. Because of its great design, and for commercial reasons, the cartridge goes beyond the civilian shooter's understanding.

Now that I've said all that, Sloan's design of the new .300 Norma, (if you haven't seen that yet) appears to be another amazing round. I believe that the design calls for a 240 grain .30 caliber projectile that moves somewhere in the neighborhood of 3100+- fps.

In addition to loading this info into your cerebral data book, I believe that there is one more cartridge of his that shines every bit as brightly as the other two on it's way.

Re: 338 Norma Review By Ward W. Brien

You are probably right!
I think that you should send me down a few hundred cases. I can put together a rifle and get a better understanding for these mysterious cartridges.


While you are at it. You have let the cat out of the bag so you had better tell us about the other one that is on the way!

My simple cerebral data book has just enough room left for one more. Maybe two?

240 smk at 3100 fps, that would be impressive.

Knocks elk down at 1550yrds. My brother-in-law has a 30-416 that is pushing them that hard. His brother is the one that shot one that far away.

It is indeed a very impressive cartridge.

Since Norma is making brass for it and it's a true winner, how long do you

think before rifle manufacturers start making it?

I've heard that there are several manufacturers cutting chambers now. This includes Seko, AI, and there is one more but I cannot remember who it is. But it is in motion for sure.
