    I got a large package from Norway today - and in it is a very nice reloading manual from Norma. Hard cover, about the same size as some of the U.S. manuals.

    Has photos of a Norma brand rifle, even a reloading press with Norma stamped on it. Saw a photo of Jeff Hoffman from BHA in a winter sniper setup, this book has a wonderful range of topic material. Very well illustrated with color photos, lots of manufacturing info and images not found in the mainstream manuals. There is a bunch of reading and learning here. Even has four pages in the back for personal loading data.

    They give loads utilizing a broad range of U.S. made bullets, but only with appropriate Norma powders, no competition powders such as Hodgdon, Alliant, DuPont etc.

    Very interesting book, have not read it yet but I can see where it has great potential.

    Did it come from a town called Finsnes, Norway? My Norwegian great grandfather had that same name.

    Not good, I am afraid I blew that one. Norma is from Amotfors, Sweden
    and I should have known that.

    Sweden...Norway, someplace over in Scandinavia - isn't that where the women are all seven feet tall, with blue eyes, blond hair and really big honkers [​IMG]

    Anyhow, this is a very nice book and worth owning.

    I just returned from a moose hunting trip to Norway. Tana in Finnmark Fylke very northern coast. I didn't see any seven footers, but they were all blonde,bluefashionable, and shapely. All Scandinavians are very friendly gentle people.
