While Swedish made Norma Ammunition may not be a household name with some American enthusiasts, the high quality of this company's products is well respected among those engaged in long-range and precision shooting endeavors. One of the new Norma loads that's been announced for 2019 is called the BondStrike, and it was designed to provide match-grade accuracy for hunting medium and large game at all distances, including  extreme long-range shots.



In addition to a streamlined polymer tip and match style boat tail for increased accuracy, the bullet's core is bonded to the copper jacket. This prevents separation after impact resulting in properly expansion and effective penetration. This new line-up will include 180-gr. bullets topping a variety of favorite .30-cal. loads including .308 Win., .30-06 Sprg., and .300 Win. Mag. BondStrike ammunition should start shipping early this year.
