    Default Norma 338 Oryx bullets

    Has anyone used the Oryx protected point bullets? I have always heard alot of good things about Norma but never heard much about this bullet. I was thinking of loading the 230 gr. but wanted to see if anyone here has tried it.

    Default Oryx Bullet

    Evaluations in the past have noted it to be a bit soft and hence perhaps not the best for magnum velocities. Accuracy is reported to be excellent. Perhaps the biggest thing it seems to offer to me it the fact that its configuration makes it a good choice for cartridge - magazine combinations where there is a paucity of room to adequately seat bullets to minimally encroach on powder capacity.

    Thumbs down Norma Oryx

    I have heard weight retention is not that good. Accuracy is exceptional.

    The Swift A-Frame in 225 gr and 250 gr is perhaps one of the best bullets for weight retention along with the Barnes TSX 225 gr.

    I myself like the 225gr Nosler Accubond in my 338 Win.
