Ballistics

After extensive stalking or stand hunting, the moment comes when the hunter decides to shoot. Then, it’s only a split second of accurate performance that counts.
Norma Ballistics - bullet flying

On the following pages we describe what happens in this short period between pulling the trigger and hitting the target, showing how Norma’s experience contributes to a controlled and reliable process. The design characteristics of the cartridge, including powder and bullet choice, provide optimal interior and exterior ballistics.

The decisive element for shooting accuracy and effect on the game is the bullet. Its aerodynamics and weight are responsible for the flattest possible trajectory. Its penetration and mushrooming characteristics provide the instantaneous death which we owe to our quarry, and ensure that the meat is damaged as little as possible.
