NORMA was founded in 1902 by the Enger brothers from Oslo, Norway. From the beginning and until halfway through the 20th century, the companies’ main business was production of military ammunition and ammunition for rifles, the range of hunting equipment gradually became more interesting.

NORMA today manufactures around 30 million cartridges in more than 100 calibres each year.


We looked of one of NORMA brands, TIPSTRIKE – INSTANT STOP, which is a range developed for stopping power, combined with penetration to reach vital organs of the game. With a polymer tip, expansion is assured and gives a devastating shock effect. To retain high retention weight, the jacket is reinforced with a mechanical lock, thus making TIPSTRIKE an outstanding bullet where immediate stop is crucial.

The TIPSTRIKE is enhanced for use on all type of climate conditions. Available calibres are .308 Win, 30-06, 300 Win Mag and 300 WSM
