Well, they have my attention, thanks for posting that. I would get in line to try some of these, assuming pricing is reasonable.

It's probably an illusion but the pellets shown on top seem to have narrow waists, or perhaps it is just higher up on the badminton birdie.

The first two in the table look like they are trying to imitate JSB.  Frankly it’s probably a smart play.  The heads look more semi-dome than true dome so the BC may suffer as a result but I’ll keep an eye out and give them a try.  Thanks for the heads up.

The only information on their website appears to be the press release 

https://www.norma-ammunition.com/globalassets/1-.-new-norma-media/06-.-media-center/news-releases/airgun-pellets/en_press-release_norma_airgun-pellets_2019.pdf

They do not show up in their product categories.

I THINK that we are about to be regaled with a much broader range of quality offerings.

Qian Yuan just gave me two different pellets to test, if they are as good as their match pellets it's going to be a lot of fun.

Not inexpensive, but quality does not need an excuse.

The .pdf says these pellets won't be out until June '19.  To me, the only viable pellets out of the bunch are the FT Heavies.  They look very similar to the Beeman Ram Jets that did not group well in many guns.  The match pellets will be a hit if they are very consistent, but other manufacturers have nearly perfected this segment. 

The biggest improvements will be in the hunter class.  Do not know why they even spent the time developing a pointed pellet.  Will wait and see how the early adopters review this product.  If they as good as the Norma solids then these pellets will be all the rage in the field.

Well, there're out now.

Anybody have anything to report, good or bad? 😊

I found them sold at Midway, nowhere else yet.

With permission from St. Nick, I ordered some...! (Remember, for me down here in Peru I need to order stuff half a year in advance in order to find someone who travels from the US to Peru.... 😄). 

The Golden Trophy FT Heavy. Rolls well off my tongue. I sure hope they roll (and fly) well through the air, their bulldog shape might be a little bit of a hinderance there for having a high BC. With 17.6gr my expectations are almost certainly way higher than reality.... 🙄

Well, come Christmas and I'll hopefully be able to report something, good or bad.

I bought 4 tins of the target wadcutters from Midway. My Hatsan Dominator carbine and my old Crosman 3100 liked them. Holes touching.

Just ordered 4 tins each of the domed pellets 8.4 grains and 9.1 grains. Will see if my Springers will do well with them - HW97K, TX200HC and LGU.

Ok...my Norma .22 cal pellets shipped today and should arrive this Sunday. I bought the 17.6 and 15.9 grain pellets. I'll be testing them with my AR6 DUK Hunting Master and maybe my Discovery .22.

This is good. I'm in for a "buy & try".

Ordered from Midway a tin of all.177 & .22 FT offerings including the match in .177 -No superpoints! I've NEVER had luck with those. Pointed types are just a gimmick IMO. Shame there are no offerings in .20, but that's the 'Norm'.

The FT's look similar to the RWS Superdomes without the ribbed skirt. Hoping the .22's will do well in my hard hitting but picky, HW57. Currently the Superdomes seem to be all that it likes. Can't wait to try them. Someone mentioned a Beeman Ram Jet similarity but Ram Jets had a 'wiper' ring at the base of the dome -kind of like a ball in a cup.

I'll weigh out and mic the Norma's to look for consistencies.

Was just thinking that the Norma FT's look very similar to the Falcon .22/13.43 grain domes. I have a tin that has never been used.

Norma Pellets / Midway Shipping Beware

Got my order today from Midway. WTF? Both Norma and Midway are total clowns when it comes to pellets. No tape on the tins from Norma and no protection whatsoever from Midway.

I want to weigh and mic for consistency checking, but I'm hardly in the mood.

This was supposed to be under a new topic: "Norma Pellets / Midway Shipping Beware"

Apparently admin decided that it needs to go within this post, whereas I felt like the combination of manufacturer/distributor was cause for its own topic.

An US field target friend told me about them a while back after trying them for his springer and Field Target rifles with excellent results (tighter groups), but indicated that getting them unharmed during shipment from Midway was a lottery since ordered four tins, package was just a padded envelope, no tape on tins or additional protection, tins got nicely banged up and two arrived open and it’s  pellets scattered inside the shipping envelope. The pellets did suffered damage on shipping process and had to sort and weight check to save about a third of a tin. The claim process thru carrier and/or Midway was not optimal and took a while.  Sorry no pictures of damaged pellets.

With his experience decided not to order a tin, so he sent me about 20 of the .177 and my FT rifle loved them.  

I’m located on Puerto Rico, and have been waiting for someone else to start selling them to buy some. 

Haven’t found a second US source. Does anybody knows if someone else sells them nowadays?

Norma pellets just arrived. I'll test tomorrow and post back info. They came in a bag but lids were on and pellets were ok. The lids screw on same as H&N.

For some reason the Norma dealer locator page freezes up when select USA market. Tried different search engines but same result. Will place a test order and will see how they fare the shipments. Thanks

@ray-fox

 Try this map, just zoom in on USA and click the closest pin/s to your location and the dealer address should slide out.

Guaranteed that not all of them will be stocking the pellets though.
