.375 H&H Mag.
The 375 H&H magnum is often seen as the queen of African mediums. It is probably the most used big game cartridge through history, and has taken it's share of all African big game. A classic big game bullet with good mushrooming and penetration, the Woodleigh SP is loaded in archetypal big game cartridges and is designed for perfect regulation of double rifles. N19526 - FMJ 350GN19525 - RNSN 350G Note...
.375 Flanged Mag. Nitro Express
In 1912, the most famous pair of big game cartridges came along - the belted 375 H&H Magnum for bolt action rifles and the 375 H&H Flanged magnum for double rifles. They soon established themselves as the standard cartridges for the safari industry. The decline in popularity in double rifles after WWII reduced demand for 375 flanged magnum ammunition - until Norma reintroduced it as part of...
.404 Rimless Nitro Express
Introduced in 1909 and chambered in a Mauser action, the 404 became the workhorse of several African game departments. Not nearly as famous as other cartridges for African big game, it was still much more widely used. The 10.75x73 in modern loadings is better than ever, and will remain one of the greatest cartridges for big game. A classic big game bullet with good mushrooming and penetration, the...
.416 Rigby
The 416 Rigby is one of the most famous cartridges for Africa. It was introduced in 1911 and with strong bullets and low pressures it was always reliable when hunting dangerous game. Following renewed interest in classic African cartridges the 416 Rigby is seeing a new dawn and more 416 Rigby are being built than ever before. A classic big game bullet with good mushrooming and penetration, the Woodleigh...
 
.500/416 Nitro Express
Most of the classic Nitro Express cartridges care about a hundred years old. The 500/416 NE only goes back a few years and was developed to meet the want of a rimmed round performance equalling that of the 416 Rigby. The 500/416 NE is a big game cartridge for double rifles using the 500 NE case and the classic 416 calibre bullet. A classic big game bullet with good mushrooming and penetration, the...
.416 Rem.
The 416 Remington Magnum is the first American-made 416, introduced in 1988 because of growing interest in the 416 calibre for hunting in Africa. The 416 Remington Magnum has the advantage of fitting into many common magnum actions that can take the 375 H&H, yet it delivers more or less the same ballistics energy as the old 416 Rigby. That's enough for the whole game. A classic big game bullet...
.450 Rigby Rimless
It's said that all Rigby cartridges are made with Africa in mind. The newest one is the 450 Rimless and it was introduced in 1995. Based on the famous 416 Rigby, this big 450 can give strong, heavy bullets higher velocities than smaller 458 Lott cases. The 450 Rigby Rimless is still new, but is already famous in Africa. A classic big game bullet with good mushrooming and penetration, the Woodleigh...
.458 Lott
The 458 Lott was introduced by Jack Lott in 1971. After having been injured by a buffalo in Mozambique, Lott wanted more than a 458 Winchester Magnum. To improve the 458 WM the Lott case was made three-tenths of an inch longer for more case capacity. The 458 WM cartridge can be used in firearms chambered for the 458 Lott and many African Professional Hunters now use the 458 Lott as their preferred...
 
.470 Nitro Express
Introduced in 1900, it became popular after 1907 with the banning of the 45 calibre cartridges in India and Sudan. The 470 NE is the most popular cartridge in the new double rifles for big game hunting in Africa, and in modern loadings, the classic 470 NE is better than ever. A classic big game bullet with good mushrooming and penetration, the Woodleigh SP is loaded in archetypal big game cartridges...
.500 Jeffery
The 500 Jerffery cartridge was first introduced around 1920 and was the most powerful rifle cartridge before WWII, loaded to higher pressures than the better known 505 Gibbs. By offering a factory loaded 500 Jeffery, Norma is achieving it's ambition to meet the demands of hunters. The interest in old, large-bore African cartridges is steadily increasing. A classic big game bullet with good mushrooming...
.500 Nitro Express
The 500 Nitro Express 3" was developed from black powder cartridges and the first smokeless 500 came in the 1890's. The big 500 NE-Double became a favourite among elephant hunters and is now in a time of renewed interest. More and more double rifles in 500 NE are being built and the time-honoured classic with new bullets will hunt in Africa again. A classic big game bullet with good mushrooming and...
.505 Gibbs
Developed by George Gibbs in 1911, the 505 was made famous by Ernest Hemingway's story 'The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber'. The big 505 Magnum Gibbs is enough cartridge for all African hunting, and is a formidable performer with modern bullets in a big rifle. A classic big game bullet with good mushrooming and penetration, the Woodleigh SP is loaded in archetypal big game cartridges and is designed...
