Sounds like a mighty fine rifle. The 358 Norma will get up there with the 375 H&H. The early 35s got a bad wrap. People tried to load them using the bullets intended for the 35 Remington. The thin jacket caused them to fail. These days excellent bullets are available.

The 308 Norma was a popular builds too. Most on the 03 Springfield so the original barrel could be rechambered.

Hope you'll keep us posted and share some pictures.

It's my understanding that Norma furnished reamers...

To gunsmiths to promote the cartridges. The Belted Cartridges were then what the Creedmoor Cartridges are today.

a 308 Norma on a Springfield 03-A3. Let me know what you find out about it. I have shot both quite a bit. The 358, I shoot a Speer 250gr at about 2800 fps.

I think that was the norm. Didn't know you had those...
