    I have a 3006 chambered to a 3008 mag. Are mag Shells the same as a norma mag shells and if so where can I purchase the shells ? The conversion was done years ago Any help is appreciated Ken

    I think you might have that 3008 mag part wrong or perhaps someone mis-stamped the barrel. Why don't you examine it again and see if you can give us some more info? I'm thinking it might be a .308 Norma Magnum but this is a guess so don't buy the cartridges and attempt to shoot them without first having your trusty gunsmith make a verification.

      Thanks you for you advice and quick response. . I am told the a gunsmith named Grossmen from Norwood Ohio made the weapon. Very nice. His name is stamped on the barrel along with 308 mag. Was there ever a shell called just named 308 Mag.?

        ish,
        I don't know just asking, but would a 308Norma mag. fit into a 06 action or even the mag? There is about .8 inch difference.

            Yes a 308 Norma Mag fits in the standard lenght action, my brother has one in a 700 Remington.

              I think Ish is correct. It is probably a .308 Norma Mag. Have a gunsmith cast the chamber to determine the chambering. The norma mag will fit a standard lenght action. Ammo for this cartridge can be hard to find. Most folks I know that shoot it reload.

                The only .308 Norma I know of is one that a guy bought from the original Herter's. I have not seen it in a long time but seems I remember it was a standard length BSA action. Another local oddity is my friend's 7 x 61 Sharpe & Hart custom on a Mauser '98 action. The rifle is about 50 years old but shoots great and is used every fall.
