Norma USA, the exclusive US distributor for the legendary Swedish manufacturer of superior hunting and target ammunition, announces new American PH and brass components at the 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Since Norma Precision announced the launch of Norma-USA in 2012 to expand their high performance ammunition offerings in the United States, hunters have realized the superior performance of the Norma-USA American PH bullet line up that offers double-diameter expansion and deep, terminal penetration.
New in the American PH line up are six new calibers for the Oryx bullet including 6mm XC, 7×57, 7×57 R, 8×57 JS, 8×57 JRS and 9.3×57. Oryx bullets are perfect for larger game where accuracy and more stopping power are essential to a successful hunt. Oryx has a non-bonded tip with a thin forward jacket with an internal splitting zone. The mid-bullet jacket is bonded to the core producing a uniform structure that prevents separation or fragmentation on impact. The thicker, rear jacket wall ensures a high residual weight after impact, well over 90%. The rapid expansion to a large diameter without fragmentation provides deep penetration and a high energy transfer. Oryx has perfect mushrooming on impact at all velocities.
Additionally, the DL line includes a 6mm XC and a 6mm Norma BR bullet, a GT 6.5-284 Norma and the new Norma-USA TAC-22 with a lead round nose. New for 2014, the Norma-USA brass components include .300 AAC Blackout, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 Grendel, 7mm RUM, 7mm Blaser Mag., .300 RUM and the .338 Blaser Mag. All Norma-USA brass components are made from the best possible raw materials with the narrowest tolerances to deliver accuracy round after round, thus ensuring a long life and many reloads. The case neck of Norma brass cartridges is annealed to become softer and prevents gas leaks. It enables the case to hold the bullet firmly for at least 10 years without cracking as a result of aging materials. The hardness is increased further down the case body to avoid unnecessary stretching and further down around the primer pocket, the brass’ hardness is nearly twice that of around the neck.
All Norma-USA new bullets and brass components are available at your local Norma-USA dealer.
