Bonding involves soldering together the bullet jacket and core to produce a uniform structure preventing separation or fragmentation on impact, even after striking dense bone.
Oryx means good accuracy, massive mushrooming and high residual weight. This bonded design suits the all-round hunter who wishes to simplify the choice of cartridge for hunting. Oryx is available in most calibres from 222 Remington to 375 H&H Magnum. Thanks to its excellent performance, in a very few years Oryx has become the most popular of the Norma bullets.
One of the most rapid opening of the bonded core bullets available on the market today, yet still giving deep penetration necessary for poor angle shots. The Oryx is intended for larger game or use at higher velocities.
Norma´s Oryx: best bullet for tough game?
The first bullets were lead balls. Now they’re complex missiles, most with multiple parts. Alloys of specific purpose ease their passage through rifle barrels and determine their upset in game. Jackets and cores are bonded – or not. Some bullets have no cores. Some wear polymer tips. Shank, ogive and nose designs reflect desired cartridge length, trajectory and terminal performance. Here’s a quick look at one of the most celebrated big game bullets, and a history it shares with many others.
