Norma Oryx Silencer

Bonded classic since 1996
For silencers and short barrels

Since the introduction in 1996, Oryx has been a pioneer in our range of hunting bullets, and it has been praised for its performance all over the world. Naturally Oryx was the first bullet launched in our Norma Silencer Series in 2020.

The Oryx Silencer cartridge is loaded with our popular Oryx bullet in our dark grey cases that also helps you to keep your standard loads and Norma Silencer Series separated when the bullets are the same. The features of the Oryx bullet are the same as on our standard ammunition but the load is optimized for shorter barrels. 50 cm instead of CIP standard 61 cm. If you have a shorter barrel than 61 cm, you benefit from shooting Norma Silencer Series even without a silencer/suppressor. With an optimized load, you get greater speed and more effect, closer to your standard ammunition shot in standard 61 cm barrel.
