posted on July 27, 2019

Norma is known for making outstanding ammunition that delivers first-in-class accuracy combined with reliability and unsurpassed on-target terminal performance. Its ammunition lines have been premium, go-to options for hunters, competition shooters and handgunners in the market for solid self-defense fodder. Norma is now bringing that ability to make hard-hitting, high-performance ammunition to the other areas of the firearms world with the introduction of the company's new Tactical line, beginning with the highly anticipated 223 Norma Tactical.

“The 223 is one of the most popular rounds in this country,” said Paul Lemke, General Manager for RUAG Ammotec USA. “Our new Tactical line is ideal for the range and for the field—and offers the performance and reliability Norma’s ammunition is known for, at a price even high-volume shooters can afford.”

This all-purpose addition to Norma’s 223 line begins with a 55-grain full metal jacket bullet which is designed for reliable feeding in a wide variety of rifles and pistols. The ammunition is brass-cased ammunition and manufactured to exacting specifications in order to ensure consistent, reliable extraction under the most trying of conditions. Built for the most demanding of users, the consistency offered by the new 223 Norma Tactical sets new standards for performance.

MSRP for a box of 20 rounds is $9.63, and more information on the new American made 223 Norma Tactical is available at
