MAXIMUM TERMINAL PERFORMANCE IN A LIGHTER OVERALL NON-EXPANDING PROJECTILE
Introducing the Norma NXD or Non-eXpanding Defensive ammo.
Our newly launched 9mm NXD – or “Non-eXpanding Defensive” ammunition – features a 65 grain, injection-molded copper-polymer matrix projectile with a patent-pending fluted design to efficiently achieve unmatched terminal performance. This helps to produce a lighter recoil and faster more accurate follow-up shots.
The NXD’s extreme terminal performance on-target is achieved with the help of its proprietary fluted projectile design. This technology produces a devastating energy transfer by initiating a powerful hydrodynamic ram effect upon impact with soft tissue. This, coupled with what is known as the “Venturi effect” results in a predictable, powerful energy transfer every time.
Because of the unique technology utilized in the NXD design, it does not need to rely on the expansion and mushrooming that’s required to make a typical hollow point an effective defensive round.
Designed specifically as a personal defense cartridge, penetration is optimized within soft targets, eliminating concerns of overpenetration or collateral damage.
