This is a very interesting article. Seems like this is a great performing round that closely matches the 338 Lapua, Edge and 338 RUM.

    most of the time my opinions should be kept to myself, but,I'll offer it anyway. So, in my opinion, as good as the other cartridges are, they don't run as good as the Norma. The design is superb and you should give it a try.

    I am confinced.. This is the round for my new build.. I am somewhat new to this longrange shooting stuff and sometimes have questions that may seem somewhat stupid, but I am asking nonetheless.

    Sorry to change the supject a little but on page 5 of this forum it was mentioned that the left hand twist was to counteract the effects of corrialis.

    My question is: if the earth rotates easterly on a north/south axis, wouldn't the effects of spin drift be different depending on whether you were shooting north or south? I am sure there is a very good explanation for this, but I; for the life of me; can not figure it out. Can someone please explain it to me???

    Thanks
    Duane

    Not to confuse you, however, coriolis is a great big, enormous, draconianly LARGE issue IF you are sending Mortars downrange. Its not for bullets, even if you are shooting a mile with a heading of zero degrees and in the Northern hemisphere. Yes, (here we go again with my opinion) but in my opinion the POI at 1000 yards can be 2"+. But the question that counters that if the shooter is really concerned, is, what about spin drift / Magnus Effect? Technical Shooter's, "Techy's) care about it all.

    Trueblue, bad luck with the shoulder. Don't let a little thing likle a crook shoulder slow you down.
    Don't you have two? Use the other one and keep the big bangers.

    Topshot,
    I thought about that. Might try and train myself to shoot left handed with my 22LR until I heal up.
    So as not to scare anyone away from the big magnums, this injury was related to 35 years of heavy construction work, not from shooting a rifle.
