April 2012 – Norma USA, a subsidiary of the legendary Swedish manufacturer of superior hunting and target ammunition, is proud to introduce the new Norma USA American PH ammunition line and the availability of the long sought after Norma African PH within the United States.
Norma’s American PH line is designed and engineered specifically for the demands of the American sportsman. The new line-up of precision-grade ammunition features high-performance, bullet and powder combinations in fifty-calibers from .243 Win. to .340 Weatherby and all the best hunting calibers in between. Norma cases are precision manufactured to deliver superior accuracy and carefully inspected to ensure proper bullet seating and primer pocket alignment. Only the best in powder charges are used to achieve the maximum ballistic performance of any combination.
Included in the new American PH ammunition line are the popular, hard hunting Oryx and Kalahari bullets. The Oryx bullet ensures perfect mushrooming at all impact velocities and excellent penetration. The Oryx expands rapidly upon impact without fragmentation creating a large wound without damage to the surrounding meat. American big game hunters find the Kalahari bullet can meet any challenge whether hunting on open ranges or in the mountains where long shots are common. The Kalahari’s design ensures the highest possible velocity within safe pressures to give the flattest trajectory possible. It also gives the best possible ballistic coefficient and lowest wind-drift achievable. The bullet expansion upon impact is controlled and restricted providing maximum wounding and deep penetration.
The Norma African PH ammunition, designed for stopping a determined charge from one of Africa’s Big Five is now available through Norma USA and shipping from the US warehouse to all major US retailers. This highly acclaimed line-up was developed with the aim to optimize traditional ballistic criteria, which in turn, are responsible for the most important criterion of all – stopping power. The Norma African PH line up is comprised of 23 combinations from .375 Flanged Mag Nitro Express to .505 Mag Gibbs.
