    Norma still make brass and factory ammo for it, I think guncity (horrors!) have some and gunworks have brass.

    308 Norma Mag Norma 180gr Soft Point

    Gunworks Ltd - 308 Norma Mag

    Great calibre, expensive to set up but on you have brass and dies no more than any other .30 calibre.

    Workshop Innovation have the cheapest brass at $98 for 50.

    Go for it, rare calibres are

    I believe the cases can be made by necking up 7mm Rem mag or necking down 338 Win mag, it's a great calibre i knew a couple of guy's back in the day that had them very good long range hunting round every bit as good
    as the 300 Win mag. Robert.

    Necked down 338 win mag - 308 Norma is basically a 30-338

    Just rung gun city bout ammo. 124 dollars for 20 180 gr rounds. No brass available. I'm tempted to buy it but it might sit in the cupboard a fair bit . Apparently they blow scopes apart regularly too

    Wouldn't reckon they would break good quality scopes any more than the other belted magnums.
    Gunworks and workshop innovation have brass.
    If you don't take it and its a good deal pass in the details, I might be keen!

    Broke the reticle in a S&B 1.25-4 with my 358 Norma mag years ago so it must be true

    Never had an issue with scopes on my 30-338. Even an old weaver k4 survived.
