.338 Norma Magnum (8.6×64)

The .338 Norma Magnum round was designed by Norma of Sweden, as a shorter-case version of the .338 Lapua Magnum, optimized for use with long and heavy, low-drag bullets. It gradually catches up as a dedicated long range sniper cartridge, and at least one experimental machine gun is chambered for this round.
