NORMA African PH ammunition

FOLLOWING TEXT FROM: NORMA AMMUNITION WEBSITE Muzzle energy is one way of measuring the efficiency of different cartridges and calibers. For many an African hunter this is the criterion by which a suitable caliber for a particular hunt is chosen. The concept behind Norma’s AFRICAN PH range is different. Based on many generations of experience of reputable African Professional Hunters, this range of cartridges has been developed with the aim to optimize ballistic criteria such as Bullet Momentum, Sectional Density and deep, straight-line, bone-breaking penetration. These factors in turn, are responsible for KO or Knock Out Value, probably the most important ballistic criterion of all, for stopping a determined charge from one of Africa’s Big Five. Heavy-for-caliber bullets have good Sectional Densities. They’ll also produce higher Momentum Values than lighter bullets of the same caliber. Most importantly, they will also have better KO Values - and they will assure larger wound channels. It is for all these reasons that Norma, inspired and supported by Kevin ”Doctari” Robertson, is following this old and logical line of thinking in the new African PH line of big bore ammo. African Professional Hunters who hunt big game regularly, know that the concept works. They would not stake their lives or their reputations on it, if it didn’t! In the golden era of hunting in East Africa, the Safari operators in Nairobi - Safariland, Ker & Downey and White Hunters - were run by a small community of families. Norma has the honour and pleasure to present some of the most experienced African professional hunters of all times, like Harry Selby, Sten Cedergren and Andrew Holmberg, but also present-day authorities like Kevin ”Doctari” Robertson and Don Heath. The name of the new Norma African PH range is a tribute to these hunters, who are as much immortal professionals, as for ever parts of African history. We are pleased to share with you the dream of hunting in Africa. We also share with you the vast, collective experience of Africa’s top professional hunters in the fi eld of dangerous big game hunting. It is this experience which has influenced our new product - Norma African PH. ---AVAILABLE CALIBERS--- * 375 Holland & Holland Magnum * 375 Flanged Magnum Nitro Express * 404 Rimless NE Jeffery * 416 Remington Magnum * 416 Rigby * 500/416 Nitro Express * 450 Rigby Rimless * 458 Lott * 470 Nitro Express * 500 Nitro Express 3 * 500 Jeffery * 505 Magnum Gibbs ---MANUFACTURER CONTACT INFO--- NORMA PRECISION AB 67040 Amortfors - Sweden TEL: +46-(0)57131500 FAX: +46-(0)57131540 URL: http://www.norma.cc
