The .308 Norma Magnum is very much a standardized 30-338WM. It's not interchangeable but it is very similar to that wildcat. Everyone assumed Winchester would legitimize the 30-338WM but since it was so close the the 308NormaMag, Winchester developed the 300WM. Performance between the two is very close with the 300WM having a slight edge, but theoretically the .308NormaMag and 30-338WM are better case designs than the 300WM. Brass is still available or it can be formed without too much trouble.
Luck favors the prepared.

The original battle plan did not survive initial contact with the enemy.
