7X61 Super


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I recently purchased at auction a firearm, militaria & ammo collection. I've been trying to find anyone interested in a box of ammunition that has no firearm to go with it; it is '7X61 Super Norma No. 17011 20 pcs 154gr Spire Point' and it has a strange imprint on the primer that I believe is NP. Does anyone know someone that could use this kind of ammo?

mayhap it would fit the old 7x61 Sharp & Hart ?

There was a small hand-written note stuck in the flap of the box that read, " For a German 7X61 S&H, sold in '03". I believe the 'S&H' stands for Sharp & Hart, but his widow told me that he had sold quite a lot of his collection over the last few years, so I don't have a chamber to try the rounds in. On his Master List, he only lists one rifle in 7X61 S&H, so I assume this ammo shoots it.

The 7X61 "super" is different than the 7X61 S&H in that the "super" had a thinner case so's to hold more powder. It was also called the "7X61 magnum"

On the outside they were the same.

The NP means it's original Norma ammo.

Thanks for the info on the 7X61 S&H aka 7X61 Super aka 7X61 Magnum! Everyone should learn 1 new piece of information each day, or you just shouldn't roll out of bed...

Canuy,
Do you still have any of the Norma 7x61 Super for sale? I inherited a Interarms 7x61 Mauser Action from when my father passed in January and could really use the rounds, at least until I can start handloading.
