This bullet is Norma's tough, all around hunting bullet. 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. Thanks to its excellent performance, in a very few years Oryx has become the most popular of the Norma bullets. We recommend this bullet for most hunting situations but especially when large or tough animals are hunted at normal hunting ranges. This round is designed to fit and function through standard short action magazines and twist rates.
We measure each powder charge to within +/- .02 grains on our Autotrickler powder systems. We seat each bullet with Redding competition seat dies on our Forster Co-Ax single stage press. We load them one at a time! Each round is hand measured for consistency and placed into our hard plastic, twenty count boxes. Each box has a foam insert and neoprene strap to keep your rounds secure in the field. This is loaded ammunition.
