Norma Introduces New Non-Expanding NXD Defensive Ammunition

Defensive handgun ammunition has been receiving a lot of new attention lately with the recent introduction of the new 30 Super Carry cartridge. Despite the introduction of this new cartridge, companies like Norma Ammunition are continuing to offer concealed carriers new options for some more longstanding popular calibers like 9mm. Norma Ammunition’s latest offering is their new non-expanding NXD Defensive cartridge which relies not on expansion for its lethality, but rather a solid injection molded copper fluted projectile that transfers an extreme amount of energy into the target while simultaneously offering the user less recoil impulse to allow for faster follow up shots.

PRIME AMMO Responds to Litigation

Our regular readers may remember this  article back in May of 2018 about PRIME Ammo’s new 6mm Creedmoor offering. Cool, but not huge news. The bigger news is why the new cartridge never made it to market. A lot of us would have just written it off as typical gun industry “vaporware”.  Not the case though: in fact this ammunition actually exists and has been (according to PRIME) paid for and produced en mass. However, it has allegedly never been delivered to PRIME. This is one of the complaints in PRIME Ammo’s lawsuit against RUAG Ammotec. Here is a link to the counter-suit PRIME has filed against RUAG Ammotec ( https://www.primeammo.com/uploads/041519-Answer-to-Amended-Complaint.pdf). It doesn’t take a lawyer to recognize the term ‘counterclaim’. RUAG first filed a claim again Citizens Amunition LLC (PRIME Ammo) in November 2018 ( https://www.primeammo.com/uploads/11_19_18-Served-Amended-RUAG-Ammotec-Complaint-RUAG-vs-Ctiizens.pdf).
