One year after the introduction of the .358 Norma Magnum in 1959 Norma necked down the case to accept .308” bullets and the .308 Norma Magnum was born. In spite of its slightly smaller case capacity it is actually a more well-balanced design than most of the other .300 magnums as it is better suited to standard length actions and covers the same range of hunting purposes. However the decisive factor to the success of a cartridge is whether the large American manufacturers decide to chamber rifles for it, and like its parent cartridge this was unfortunately not to become the fate of the .308 Norma Magnum.
