    Notice the difference between 338 Lapua Magnum and 338 Norma Magnum.

     

    .300 Norma Magnum
    A recent development based on the 338 Norma Magnum necked down to .30 caliber, the .300 Norma Magnum was adopted as the US military’s Advanced Sniper Cartridge “for extra long ranges beyond 1 500 meters”. In addition to its military duties, the 300 Norma is sure to find favor with Long Range competitive shooters and hunters. Lapua is pleased to add this impressive case to our line!

     

    .338 Norma Magnum
    Based on the .416 Rigby case, the .338 Norma Magnum was developed by J. Sloan and D. Kiff as a long-range sporting cartridge. Norma adopted the design and standardized it with CIP in 2010. The US military has spurred the development some machineguns chambered for the .338 Norma, which would be capable of providing superb long-range capability. With Lapua’s unmatched standard of quality, handloaders will find our new .338 Norma Magnum cases a choice for extra long range shooting applications.

     

    Both the .300 Norma Magnum and the .338 Norma Magnum cases will be available in 2018. Will you be trying these out?
