Norma is taking a unique approach to lead-free big-game bullets with EcoStrike. Beginning with a copper-alloy composition that has proven superior in terms of penetration and weight retention. The Swedish manufacturer is applying a proprietary plating that all but eliminates the problem of copper fouling. Rather than the driving bands present on some copper bullets, this tipped, boat-tail design has a slight “waist,” thus allowing displaced metal to flow and pressures to remain stable as the bullet travels through the bore. At present, EcoStrikes are available in 7x65 mm R, 7x64 mm, 7 mm Rem. Mag., .308 Win., .30-’06 Sprg., .300 Win. Mag., .300 WSM, 8x57 mm JRS, 8x57 mm JS, 9.3x62 mm and 9.3x74 mm R and will also be sold as handloading components. norma-usa.com
