Norma has teamed up with Woodleigh bullets to offer the finest dangerous game ammunition available. Tried and tested steel-jacketed solids and bonded-core softpoints are coupled with high quality
Norma brass and powder and loaded under the most rigorous inspection standards in the industry. Nickelled cases are used to ensure the most reliable feeding and ejection from rifles whose metalwork is too hot to touch or is full of the inevitable African dust. The Woodleigh FMJ bullets use a steel jacket twice as thick as any other in the industry. Cases are all hand inspected both before and after loading. We carefully select powder and primer in order to make variations in point of impact from batch to batch as small as possible.
It is our goal that you can pick up a box anywhere in the world and have the same point of impact as with the box you used at home.
The 500 Nitro Express 3' was developed from black powder cartridges, and the first smokeless 500 came in the 1890s. The big 500 NE-Double became a favourite among elephant hunters, and is now in a time of renewed interest. More and more double rifles in 500 NE are being built and the time-honoured classic with new bullets will hunt in Africa again.
