So in anticipation of a lathe I'm getting parts together for two builds but I need advice. The first rifle will be for my buddy chambered in a 338 RUM, he wants to stay vanilla simple but I want to do something a little different so I'm going with the 338 Norma mag, and here lies the questions. There is very limited info on the 338 Norma so does anyone know anything. I've found a little on improving it but it seems to not be worth it. What about brass, Norma vs Jamison? Most of the info I've found has been with shorter barrels, so anything on a barrel in the 30in range? Anything anyone would have would be great! Initial plans are Savage long action, Brux 1-9.3 twist standard palma contour 30in long with a Muscle brake. Mcree stock. Whatcha think?
