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.

In 1925 Winchester introduced a .30-06 case necked down to a bullet diameter which until then never had been used any British or other European manufacturer: .277”. The result was to become one of the most popular hunting cartridges in the world. When introduced it offered better long range performance than any other available big game cartridge. It was the favorite of the late gunwriter Jack O’Connor who through his writing popularized the .270 everywhere in the English speaking parts of the world. In Europe it also became widely used, but met heavy competition from the many popular 6,5mm cartridges and especially the 7×64 Brenneke. Over here it was never called by its metric designation – 6,9×64 – but kept its American name of .270 Winchester.

The success of the .270 was undoubtedly partly due to fact that it has a combination of a flat trajectory and a very manageable recoil with the standard 130 grain bullet. At normal hunting ranges a well placed bullet from a .270 means instant death to all species up to the size of mule deer, and many hunters prefer it for mountain hunting as respectable muzzle velocities and equivalent trajectories can be had from a 22” or even a 20” barrel.

Whether the .270 is an elk cartridge or not has been discussed endlessly, but hunters who do intend to use the .270 Win. on these species are recommended to use bullets in the 150-160 grain range in order to ensure sufficient penetration. With 100 grain bullets the .270 is also a fine varmint cartridge, although not intended to be when originally designed.

Additional Information:

Since the introduction of Oryx in 1996, it has been a pioneer in our range of hunting bullets, and it has been praised for its performance all over the world.
But what makes the Oryx bullet so unique? Well, a combination of rapid expansion for great effect, extremely high residual weight and deep penetration that has great effect even on large game.

ORYX is a so-called bonded bullet, which means that the jacket and the core are fused together. When hitting the target, it expands quickly but the bonding prevents the separation of the jacket and the core, resulting in residual weights of over 90%. This also greatly contributes to the bullet getting its deep and straight penetration, with great mushrooming for which it has also become famous.

The tip of the ORYX has internal cleavage zones and with a special technique the outer part of the tip is left unbonded. It is these details that differentiate ORYX from other bonded bullets and give it a wide range of uses under the most varied hunting conditions.

  • Bonded classic since 1996
  • Up to 99% retained weight
  • The number one bullet for all types of hunting
  • Massive mushrooming
  • Offered in a wide variety of calibers

All-round bullet

For more than 25 years, ORYX has proven to be an exceptionally good all-round bullet. With its controlled expansion and high residual weight, it is suitable for all types of hunting and is available in our widest range of calibers.
