The loading department


Cases and bullets of top quality are the starting point for loading of Norma cartridges, and the loading process itself will ensure that the finished product is also of top quality – Norma’s hunting and shooting cartridges.

It is important that a bullet has the right extraction force and that the primer is correctly placed in the primer pocket. The cartridge must be loaded with powder that is optimal for the calibre, the case volume and the bullet weight, in order to achieve the desired muzzle velocity and the best precision that the cartridge can perform. To find the best powder, all powder batches are tested for velocity and pressure. The maximum operating pressure should also be correct in relation to the CIP standards.
