308 Norma Mag project

So, I decided to tweak the rifle a little. The idea is to make it as accurate as possible to take advantage of the long range potential. Also, got a deal on wood for a new stock. The new barrel is stainless steel Benchmark # 5 that was spiral fluted to reduce weight.

      Exotic looking blanks......................Have seen lots of interest in the 300 Norma of late, but almost none regarding the 308 Norma.......(which died a premature death in the USA at the hands of the 300 Win Mag)........Curious.....why this choice? Best of luck with it...........FWB

      @flatwater bill I was looking for something with a bit more umph than my 06. I wanted a collection of belted cases for some reason not totally understood lol. I was originally looking at the 300 H&H and then heard about this one. I like the case design and its unique but not altogether rare.

      Benchmark has been making good barrels as of late. The #5 contour is just right for fluted on that cartridge. Good luck with the project.
