I could not find any reference anywhere to the round you mentioned. Are you talking about the .358 Norma Magnum ? I guess it is conceivable that it is known as that. Cartridges of the world. and speer list several .358 Norma mag loads. Also all powder manufacturers have a websight that has basic load data.

Thanks for reply.
The 358 Norma Magnum bullet was made for the American market.
One or two european companies manufactured rifles to suit..
A popular conversion was to re-barrel the rifle to 375 retaining the short 358 NM case ..
The case is the same size as the 338WM,with the neck expanded to take the 375 pill...
It is basically a shortened 375 H&H
Hope this clarify's my request for info..

Yeah, funny, for whatever reason, in the States the common practice is to put bore size first, then parent case, e.g., .375-.358 Norma.
There's the .375 Chatfield-Taylor, made by Bob Chatfield-Taylor, of .416 Taylor fame, and it's basically the same thing, though I think most use .338 Win Mag brass for it.
Here's a place to start:

Well Sideironjohn,you are never to old to learn something new.
My rifle calibre is 375/338.
Using 300gn round nose projectiles I knocked down 5 asian buffalo.
Only one required a follow up shot.
Best buff was 112 SCI and smallest was 95 SCI..
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction for info and loads.
Alan
