    The Excellent 308 Norma Magnum

    I am a cartridge nerd, and I looked at so many cartridges before deciding to build my 308 NM. Very happy I did. Powerful without being difficult to shoot. Nice to load. Looks great. Shame it is not more popular. An impractical but practical cartridge lol.

    Canada's boy king Bans Firearms - List of 1500

    Do you know what provision allows the banning of a 300 H&H? I am trying to understand what restriction allows the banning of the calibers noted. Very stupid outcome.

    I think the 325 wsm kinda cool. Is that enough reason to by one, dies, and bullets? :);)

    Mountain boots for South Africa

    I wear my Courtneys for everything unless it is very wet, or snowy. I used to have insoles in them, but took them out this year as my feet seem to have changed?? NOw just using the stock insoles

    Mountain boots for South Africa

    A year and a half until the next hunt, time to start obsessing (y) This time it's off to the mountains in the eastern cape. I have a pair of Courtney Sealous that I used last time. Love the boots and wear them all the time. But, do these mountains require a boot with more support?

    Comment by 'Pheroze' in media '308 Norma Mag chambered'

    @Hogpatrol I believe the Sinclair tool works from the Ogive. Put in a bullet first and measure to its base. You then put in the brass and measure to its base. Add the length of the bullet to the distance between the base of the brass and the base of the bullet. It's a neat little tool. (That is...

    I have used Woodleigh for all of my hunting, 6.5x55 up to 375 H&H. But, it seems, my 308 Norma is a contrarian o_Oand shoots 180grain like a 12 Guage. I have been able to group AFrames under an inch. But, it is a pain to source them. I want to try and see if I can get woodleigh to work. I have...

    Rifle doesn't like Woodleigh

    I also changed the COL. When I measured again with the Sinclair tool, I moved the bullets forward a little more than 0.02. I had already built an A-Frame load, the bullets are set back farther (I used the same COL with the Woodies originally, which was part of the error. It seems A-Frames...

    I am actually strongly favouring that idea. After everything I have read here about crimping, I doubt I will do it again, unless it is shown to be needed.

    Thanks. Strangely, the Swift website does not list them as resellers for Canada. The one that is in my area has dropped off the planet recently, unfortunately. Get 'em while you can, I suppose. I may try the Scirocco II too.

    Rifle doesn't like Woodleigh

    Interesting day. Fixed COL, didn't crimp with the Lee Factory Crimp, and no Magnetospeed applied 67.5gr - 2.73" 70.0 gr - 2.12" 70.5 gr - 1.27" 71.0 gr - 2.45" So, things are looking better(y). Still not where I want to be, but not the crazy group from before. Hopefully, I can shave a...

    Rifle doesn't like Woodleigh

    Interesting, I was wondering that too. The primers at 73 gr (max in the woodleigh manual) are absolutely fine. I have loaded for the bottom of the ladder. If no love then higher it is! When I load at load data for the 308 NM in various texts, it seems to typically sit in that mid- 2800 to mid...

    I'll see how it goes tomorrow. If still crappy found a place in QC that sells Scirocco II, which I will try. They do have A-Frames too but are not on the Sift website as a listed vendor, so I am not sure if I can get a regular supply from them.

    I went back to the basics: I used my Sinclair Seating Depth Guage to get 0.02(ish) off of the lands. Also, started at the bottom of the ladder:Pompus:. I told the wife I can't sleep, and will not go back to work until I figure this out! She looks concerned:Bored:...but supportive :) Off to...

    Hi Ray The rifle is pillar bedded. It shoots A Frame and CEB raptors under an inch at 100. So, i am pretty sure its something I am doing wrong with this bullet. btw, i think I bought my Brno 375 from you? You had hurt you hand at the time I believe. If so, nice to hear from you again

    I have the Woodleigh Manual, that is where my load data comes from. I am just not feeling the love between this rifle and those bullets, lol. Maybe slower is better with this rifle, and I will drop the loads to the lower end of the scale. I just wanted to be up by 3000 fps and not down by...

    Barrel is free floated. I will reduce the load to see if I find a sweet spot. If not, either 4350 or varget will be next

    Rifle doesn't like Woodleigh

    On the target board they were perfect little holes. The paper may have gotten a bit crumpled. Reviewing the loading manual I realize that I started the loads at the mid point (71.5 grains, with 73 gr being max.) Starting load is 67gr. So I should try lowering the load before moving off of it.
