    Howdy Gang,

    I just finished up assembling my new Savage .338 Norma and thought I would share a picture and some specs. The receiver work, barreled action, and black finish was completed by Lorenzo at Deadly Precision Gunsmithing out of Utah. The stock finishing, bedding, inletting and final assembly was done by me, first time doing all of this on my own. I will post groups and load data once I get a chance to head to the range, as a side note I am planning on working up loads with the .300 Grain Berger hybrid bullets, CCI primers, and using either H-1000 or Retumbo for powders. Feedback is always appreciated, thanks!
