    I am having a rifle made in .358 Norma Mag on a p14 action. I have wondering if anyone had tips on making brass. What are the best parent cases to use? Fire forming? Also are there certain weight bullets I should stay away from it is a 1:12 twist Douglas barrel.

    i believe you can make it out of 338 win, neck will be just alittle short. I had a .308 norma, and am about to build another, it will be on a P14 also.

    The 1-12 will stabilize all common 35 cal bullets. My load was 80 grains of 4350 with a 225 grain bullet in the mid 2900's.
