    Probably a bit late in answering you at this stage but I have one and let me say that it is a belter and simply hammers what it comes in contact with.

    I had one of my fathers 358 norma mag. He hunted all over, It is every bit as effective as a 375. He shot 250's only and it was deadly accurate. I'm a Blaser/mauser/Sauer fan and just hunt with a few rifles so I let a few go. Here is a pic of one of his 358 NM's. His other I still have in a M70 with a 26in barrel.

    This one was built on a FN mauser with a 26in barrel, this was a true sub MOA gun if you could hold it! Recoil was brisk with out the break--A true puppy with the break installed.
