    338 Norma

    Here is the 338 Norma on a 700 action.
    Fluted PT&G bolt, light weight firing pin & shroud
    Fluted 26" Trueflite UM barrel T3 Terminator brake.
    It is bedded into a 700p stock with 5 shot mag.

    So far she is shooting the 300s 1/2 moa at just over 2800 fps





    Took her up the range again this morning with the Berger 300 OTMs seated to mag length



    It is pushing the 300s slightly faster than the Edge, with a few grains less powder, but there is nothing in it really.

    It really is a neat little round, I have two others, that shoot incredibly well, this is the first one on a 700 that I have made

    Deer, Tahr, etc.

    I probably won't use it, I have a few other 338s

    I'm building some 375s medium & big, when they are up & running properly I will be using them.

    With the right projectile & practice you can shoot out to & beyond 1000 quite happily.

    Recoil is basically a non event now with the Terminator brakes.

    I will put a vid up with my daughter firing it next weekend

    I haven't weighed it, at a guess the XLR would add around a kg.

    I will check when I get the chance

    It weighs 4.3 kilos without scope or rings.

    The HS stock is quite heavy, so is the bottom metal.

    If it went into a Carbon stock & std BDL or ADL it would be considerably lighter.

    My 26" Edges with Carbon stock & Scope weigh about the same or slightly less
