    .300 Norma magnum

    I do love my Norma calibres and have both an .308 NM and a .358 NM in my safe...both have taken deer in my hands too but as 99% of you blokes on here know a bloke can never have enough toys hence I am thinking along the lines of adding a .300 Norma Mag to the sambar stalking lineup.

    I dare ask has any SD member got one?

    You aren't confusing .300Win Mag with the .300Norma Mag that John was talking about were you Paul? The T3 is available in Win Mag but not Norma Mag.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    My force just put .300 mag on mine so I could choose a Wetherby /R.U.M/ or whatever.

    While .300 win mag is used by several shooters of my acquaintance John I can't say that I have ever run across a shooter using the Norma Magnum in this country. My guess is that there will be only a few if any in this country. I did know a guy who had a .300 H&H rifle though but even he had to admit that he only bought it because he fancied it rather than any ballistic advantage it had over similar cartridges. He struggled to obtain cases for it and I suppose it would be the same or even worse with the Norma?

    Sorry Double four I guessed wrong.
    Sounds very sensible to allow an element of choice though.
