|Traditions are very different around the world. And why not? This is the kind of thing that makes other cultures so interesting. Sure enough, this is also true for hunting.|
|For instance, Americans often use lighter bullets and higher muzzle velocity. Average ranges are also longer. Europeans traditionally use heavier bullets and moderate velocities. They shoot at shorter ranges. This has a direct effect on the choice of bullets, Stateside and in Europe.|
|Bullets striking at high velocity need to be tougher to hold together. So, for instance, a copper bullet is more suited for flat & fast shooting than traditional soft noses.|
|Norma Precision, that defines the quality of components and loading selected for Norma´s American PH lineup. Production starts with the highest quality brass cases available in the industry, combines that with Norma powder and bullets specifically selected for North American big game.|
|It´s the professional´s choice for today´s precision grade ammunition. We offer a complete lineup for all your choice calibers.|

|NORMA´S TRIED AND TRUE ORYX BOUNDED BULLET FOR MAX PENETRATION AND NEAR 100% WEIGHT RETENTION.|
|To insure perfect mushrooming, the Oryx has thin forward jacket with internal splitting zones and a thicker rear jacket to insure high residual weight after impact. The Oryx has a rapid expansion, excellent penetration and high energy transfer.|
|Perfect for the North American Big Game Hunter!|
- Thin forward jacket section
- Core soldered into jacket
- Pure lead core
- Thick rear jacket section
- Crimping increases dependability
Bonding involves soldering together the bullet jacket and core to produce a uniform structure preventing separation or fragmentation on impact, even after striking dense bone.
Oryx means good accuracy, massive mushrooming and high residual weight. This bonded design suits the all-round hunter who wishes to simplify the choice of cartridge for hunting. Oryx is available in most calibres from 222 Remington to 375 H&H Magnum. Thanks to its excellent performance, in a very few years Oryx has become the most popular of the Norma bullets.
One of the most rapid opening of the bonded core bullets available on the market today, yet still giving deep penetration necessary for poor angle shots. The Oryx is intended for larger game or use at higher velocities.

|The concept behind Norma’s AFRICAN PH range is different. Based on many generations of experience of reputable African Professional Hunters, this range of cartridges has been developed with the aim to optimize ballistic criteria such as Bullet Momentum, Sectional Density and Deep, Straight-line, Bone-breaking Penetration. These factors in turn, are responsible for KO or Knock Out Value, probably the most important ballistic criterion of all, for stopping a determined charge from one of Africa’s Big Five.|
|Designed solely for the toughest game on earth, where maximum penetration is critical to reach vital organs from any angle, and to keep the hunter out of harm’s way.|
