It is impossible for a hunting bullet to perform at its best in all situations.

The velocity on impact, the location of the hit, and the design of the bullet are only some of the many factors that can affect the outcome of the shot. We have produced a schematic diagram of various bullets and how they perform at different velocities in ballistic gelatine. We hope this will help you choose the right bullet for the precise conditions and requirements of your particular hunt. 

Test shooting gelatine block

Rasmus Boström test shooting Norma cartridges in gelatine blocks. The study compares the impact energy between 6,5x55 Norma Oryx 10,1 g, 9,3x62 Norma Vulkan 15,0 g and 9,3x62 Oryx in three weights, 15,0 g, 18,5 g and 21,1 g.
