Norma brings a new personal defense handgun load to consumers, introducing the Monolithic Hollow Point in 9mm.
Designed to feed the load into pistol and carbine chambers, the MHP features a 108-grain projectile with a cold formed monolithic copper construction. The MHP delivers an all copper bullet that features “massive expansion” in addition to stopping power, according to Norma.
“Our new MHP is likely the most expanding 9mm bullet in the world,” Paul Lemke, General Manager for RUAG Ammotec USA, said in a news release. “It also reliably feeds and performs with unmatched terminal affect through expansion, in all barrel lengths/firearm platforms. Getting this performance from an all-copper projectile is a very big accomplishment for our entire team. We’re proud to offer this unique personal protection and home defense option people can trust when it matters most.”
The load is set to provide consistent penetration out of any type of 9mm firearm or barrel length. The Norma MHP in 9mm will feature a price tag of $22.48.
