SHOT Show 2019 – The Norma BONDSTRIKE Extreme line of hunting ammunition includes five entries and delivers extreme long-range accuracy and excellent performance on game at all distances
New from Norma at the 2019 edition of the NSSF SHOT Show introduced the brand new BONDSTRIKE Extreme line of hunting ammunition, designed from the ground up for extreme long-range accuracy and excellent performance on game at all distances. Featuring a state-of-the-art polymer tip, proprietary bonding and a match-style boat tail projectile, Norma's BONDSTRIKE Extreme ammunition delivers an unmatched combination of long-range precision, penetration and terminal ballistics.
Norma’s engineers developed a unique bonding technology to maximize weight retention and ensure a devastating wound channel through controlled expansion at all velocities.
Combined with the inherent accuracy of Norma’s sophisticated boat tail bullet design, the Norma BONDSTRIKE Extreme is the ideal cartridge for hunting whitetail deer, elk, antelope or any other medium to large-sized game.
Paul Lemke, General Manager for RUAG Ammotec USA, declared: "this is long-range hunting at its best. Our engineers created a bullet that is bonded for weight retention and penetration—but gets excellent accuracy. The ballistic coefficient on this .30-caliber projectile is fantastic. From a performance standpoint, BONDSTRIKE Extreme will stand out from the crowded long-range hunting bullet market. With a variety of additional .30 caliber cartridges, big game hunters will reap the rewards of this long-range hunting ammunition come fall."
Norma's BONDSTRIKE Extreme line of ammunition will hit the shelves in early 2019 in five different configurations:
- .308 Winchester 180gr BONDSTRIKE Extreme
- .30-06 Springfield 180gr BONDSTRIKE Extreme
