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.
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.
