Norma has teamed up with Woodleigh bullets to offer the finest dangerous game ammunition available. Tried and tested steel-jacketed solids and bonded-core softpoints are coupled with high quality Norma brass and powder, and loaded under the most rigorous inspection standards in the industry.

Nickel plated cases are used to ensure the most reliable feeding and ejection from rifles whose metalwork is too hot to touch or is full of the inevitable African dust. The Woodleigh FMJ bullets use a steel jacket twice as thick as any other in the industry.

Cases are all hand inspected both before and after loading. We carefully select powder and primer in order to make variations in point of impact from batch to batch as small as possible.

It is our goal that you can pick up a box anywhere in the world and have the same point of impact as with the box you used at home.


For the Professional Hunter, there are three considerations for ammunition: reliable feeding, reliable ignition and reliable straight-line penetration. Many Professional Hunters like to carry their rifles with an empty chamber and only actually load when danger threatens. The Norma Solids are designed to ensure reliable feeding in just about any make of rifle, including old, well-worn ones.

The law often forces a PH to allow a charging animal to get too close for comfort before he may shoot for effect. Unless he’s carrying a double rifle, he’s limited to one shot. Being made from a proprietary brass alloy, Norma Solids are guaranteed not to break up, turn or deviate.

They will give straight-line penetration through whatever they encounter. These rounds are loaded under higher than normal standards of quality control to ensure absolute reliability.

If you’re one of the lucky hunters to have set foot in Africa, you know. A wise man once said ”Bring Enough Gun”. And I’m sure that has echoed through everyone’s mind as they walked through the vast and still very wild African bush.

Large calibers and quality ammunition is a must in most scenarios, even when the intended quarry doesn’t warrant such a big caliber. But as we know, when you’re hunting one animal or species, you’re bound to encounter a whole lot more along the way.

So next time you’re headed to the wilds, choose Norma PH. Every offering is hand selected to bring game down hard and help ensure the entire hunting party makes it back as well.
