For the working guide, there are three considerations for ammunition: reliable feeding, reliable ignition and reliable straight-line penetration.
Many guides like to carry their rifles with an empty chamber and only actually load when danger threatens. The Norma Solids are designed to ensure reliable feeding in just about any make of rifl e, including old, well-worn ones.
The law often forces a guide to allow a charging animal to get too close for comfort before he may shoot for effect. Unless he’s carrying a double rifl e, he’s limited to one shot. Being made from a proprietary brass alloy, Norma Solids are guaranteed not to break up, turn or deviate.
They will give straight-line penetration through whatever they encounter. Like the PH series of ammunition, these rounds are loaded under higher than normal standards of quality control to ensure absolute reliability.
