Designed specifically for hunting dangerous game, Norma's African PH ammunition is focused on delivering devastating bullet momentum with high sectional density and "Knock Out Value". This involves loading heavy-for-caliber bullets into some of the world's largest and most respected big game cartridges. 

The .500 Nitro Express is a classic double-rifle cartridge, and has earned a reputation as a game-stopper. When you absolutely need to stop an animal, the .500 NE will get the job done. Norma’s African PH ammunition is perfect for the classic right-and-left combination.

Norma loads the following bullets for the .500 Nitro Express:

570-grain Woodleigh Weldcore Soft Point: Using the classic British nose profile and a proprietary bonding process, the .500 Nitro will generate a muzzle velocity of 2,100 fps with this heavy slug, making it absolutely perfect for any situation where a quality soft-point is required. With high weight-retention and good Sectional Density, the Woodleigh Weldcore is the bullet of choice for lion, grizzly, hippo and buffalo.

570-grain Woodleigh Solid: Maintaining the same nose profile as its soft point counterpart, the Woodleigh Solid will deliver a non-expanding bullet to the same point of impact. The Woodleigh Solid is a perfect choice for elephant, or for backup shots on buffalo, where straight-line penetration is paramount.
