Introduced as late as 1963 this cartridge was soon to become the most popular in the line of .300 magnums. Unlike the predecessors .458, .264 and .338 Winchester Magnums it has a longer case and a rather short neck (.264”) in order to increase the case capacity. As a rule of thumb the neck of a cartridge should be equal to the caliber or preferably a little longer, but experience has shown that the .300 Win. Mag. has not really suffered in this respect. It can still be used in a standard-length bolt action but this means that the heavier bullets must be seated rather deep and hereby occupy some of the powder space. Like the other .300 magnums it is at its best for hunting larger species like moose or elk at long range. The recoil is heavy, but most shooters will be able to handle it after some practice and handloads with lighter bullets are a good choice for this purpose.

TIPSTRIKE™ is developed for stopping power, combined with a penetration deep enough to reach the vital organs of the game. The polymer tip assures the expansion and gives a devastating shock effect due to the construction of the bullet jacket. To maintain a high retention weight, the jacket is reinforced with a mechanical lock, thus making TIPSTRIKE an outstanding bullet for driven hunts and other forms of hunting where an immediate stop is crucial.

TIPSTRIKE™ is a flat-base tipped projectile great for medium and large game. The excellent penetration achieved by controlled expansion helps ensure game is harvested quickly, ethically and effectively with well-placed shots.

The bullet is designed to release its energy powerfully on impact. It gives a strong shock effect on the game and with this high energy release, the speed of the bullet drops quickly. The mechanical lead lock makes sure the bullet has the highest retained weight possible, which in its turn delivers an excellent penetration.

Norma’s Dedicated Hunting™ Line features dozens of bullet/caliber combinations that were engineered with hunters in mind. Today’s technology is a blessing for hunters of all types—and Norma continues to lead the way by combining science, hunting experience and a passion to succeed to continue to move the product line and brand forward.

Features:

  • Polymer tip for improved ballistics.
  • The insertion of the tip gives a slight delay of the expansion to enhance penetration.
  • Devastating chock effect through a tapered and quick opened front part of the jacket.
  • Penetration secured through a strong and straight rear part of the jacket combined
    with a internal mechanical lead lock.
