Top Performance in 22 Long Rifle

 

Norma Brand of Target and Match 22 Long Rifle

Norma USA is known as a premium brand, both for their ammunition, as well as their components. More recently, they’ve been one of the few brands to consistently provide the market with 22LR ammunition. Many folks have been forced to participate in this brand transition, simply based on availability. What’s amazing is the consistency seen, even after many of the bulk 22LR have resurfaced, as demand has slackened. Norma USA has even went a step further, offering a match grade 22LR, in their MATCH-22.

We were able to reach out to a representative at Norma USA for a quick word on what makes their 22LR a cut above the rest, and what we can expect from the new MATCH-22 that recently hit the market. – “Only certain production lots of rimfire production live up to the exacting standards of Match ammunition. Each production lot is rigorously checked for performance.- Accuracy is a key component of testing and when a certain lot exceeds the accuracy standards in place for Tac-it is then tested for “match accuracy” and if all the test ammunition for this particular lot exceeds Tac and meets Match standards-then that lot is packaged as Match Ammo. Our loading facility, selection of components and rigorous testing to exact specifics are just the norm for Norma Precision Products- Norma customers expect this- they know we cost more for a reason and settle for nothing less! Neither does Norma!”

This NEW! introduction of NORMA-USA’s MATCH- 22 Ammunition is designed and engineered specifically for competitive shooting and target practice where every point counts. Assembled with the finest components and primer/powder combinations, you’ll be sure to obtain outstanding accuracy on the range. It also feeds reliably in all 22 rifle actions, including semi-automatics.

Just to get an idea of how things are done in the Norma Factory, please watch the video below. They’re not making 22LR, but you get a true sense of what precision and quality means to Norma.

Below is a review video made by a friend of Midsouth, 22plinkster. He’s a 22LR specialist, and renowned trick shooter. He put the norma TAC-22 to the test in 5 shot groups, using an AR-15 platform 22 LR, and a CZ bolt action 22LR. The results are pretty telling. At the time of his video production, the MATCH-22 ammo wasn’t available. He does go on to clarify why the MATCH would outperform even the TAC-22. He quotes the price at $6.50, which is a suggested retail price, but make sure to click below to check price and availability. Based on performance, the value is definitely there. Watch the video, and see for yourself.

  1. Is the new match 22 LR available ?? What is the price per brick & case ? Can I purchase boxes of different lots to test which works best in my rifles ??
    Thanks for your time.

  2. This sounds a little slimy to me. They make the Tac-22, and if a lot happens to exceed their quality standards they charge $3 more per box for it and call it something else? That would be like if Honda found some of their Civics accidentally exceeded their minimum EPA requirement so they started charging more for those ones and marketing them as a better car with a different name. “Whoops, this one is better than our standards. You should pay us more for it.”

    1. Understand where you’re coming from, but you have to appreciate the fact that they go through each TAC-22 round, measure their tolerance, and combine all the like with like. For precision shooting out of a 22-LR, you really can’t ask for better quality. There’s gads of reviews out there, including a couple from 22plinkster on youtube. They’re worth a watch.

  3. NORMA SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO CALL THEIR ELITE MATCH GRADE LONG RIFLE AMMO “MATCH”. BOTH OF MY CZ’S AND MY BSA TRAP DOOR SHOOT AS WELL WITH MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE ROUNDS FROM COMPETITORS. IN A BOX OF 50 I EXPERIENCED NO LESS THAN 5 “FLYERS”. A COUPLE OF THOSE AS MUCH AS 3″ FROM GROUP CENTER. NO SERIOUS RIM FIRE SHOOTER WOULD RELY ON THIS AMMO. NOR WOULD THEY SCORE WELL, FROM WHAT I’VE SEEN. THE LOT NUMBER I WAS NOT SATISFIED WITH IS #66KK4 AND WAS PURCHASED AT CABELAS IN MARYSVILLE, WA.
