Norma ORYX

Oryx bullet
Since the introduction of ORYX in 1996, we have been the industry benchmark in bonded bullets. With a combination of rapid expansion, high residual weight and deep penetration, ORYX is the number one all-round hunting bullet. When hitting the target, it expands quickly without fragmenting or breaking apart. Thanks to the unique bonding technology, ORYX offers residual weights up to 99% in some calibers on standard hunting ranges.
For more than 25 years, ORYX has proven to be an exceptionally good all-round bullet. With its controlled expansion and high residual weight, it is suitable for all types of hunting and is available in our widest range of calibers.
As the use of silencers increase in popularity, we see more and more short barrels on the market. But what few people know is that a shorter barrel drastically reduces the effect and precision of the ammunition used.
Standard rifle ammunition today is optimized for barrel lengths of 60 cm while many barrels today only measure around 50 cm. This means that the difference in length makes it impossible for the load to fully burn out before the bullet leaves the muzzle, dramatically shortening the life of the silencer and reducing the effect of the ammunition.

Oryx is the first bullet to take place in this new, optimized series of hunting bullets.
