Don’t miss out on speed and effect when using your silencer, Norma introduces new silencer optimized ammunition for 2020.
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. In reality 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.
Standard ammo tested in 610mm / 24 inch barrel. Silencer tested in 500mm / 19,7 inch barrel.
