Coming To America

No, not the Eddie Murphy movie but the Swedish ammo maker Norma. The company has a well-deserved reputation for making some of the best ammo to be found. Because I have a love for Swedish Mausers in 6.5×55, I stumbled across their brass a number of years ago. It’s not cheap but very, very good stuff.

From their release:
