I'm a mostly a pistol shooter, so can't help you much on rifles if that's your thing, but in my experience Norma Match22 is about equal to Eley Club.

I tried it in my CZ 455FS @ 50 yards and it wasn't near as good as SK STD+.

Chrony numbers and results on target

It's short range plinking ammo, similar to CCI.

200 yards 12 inches of vertical
100 yards 4 inches
50 yards 1.3 inches
25 yards 0.4 inches

Whether this means anything...Norma is made in Germany by RUAG at the same facility in Furth where RWS is also made.

For me Norma Match shoots about the same sized groups as CCI SV.

1.3 inches of verticle at 50 yards? im not calling you a liar but maybe get some better equipment or learn how to shoot. for me it averages under half inch 5 shot groups.

Tee hee...not 5 shot groups....50 shot groups.

I'm into the results from the entire box. Not tiny samples.

Try it for y'erself. Not just y'er best group, all ten 5 shot groups in aggregate.
See if you don't end up with more than 1 inch total spread.
That'll be mv spread and cartridge differences affecting the total results.
Ammo quality varies cartridge by cartridge, so do the results.

Equipment is pretty decent. CZ 455 Varmint, Lilja EPS chambered barrel, pillared, bedded, 12 ounce trigger, 32x scope.
Setup is adequate. I don't have to do much but touch the set trigger.
Does quite well out to 200 yards for the past 3 years.
Equals the results for much fancier rigs.

Thank you, wonshott.
Not many are willing to take me up.
All 50 shots on a single target does keep it interesting.
Most make noise, then never back up their claims.


Either that, or their results were worse than mine.


Wonshott, if you have a chronograph, record the mv's too.
I like the extra data when checking ammo quality.
Don't forget to document wind speed and direction.

Shot a box of Norma match today with a CZ 452 Lux. No better than CCI SV. That's been my (so far disappointing) experience with every gun I've tried it in. I would rank it under Eley Club, and significantly below SK Standard Plus. I'm sure there are guns out there that love it but I don't own one of them.

Not about love MG, it's about cartridge quality.
Get a box of Norma Match with tight mv's and few manufacturing defects,
it'll group as good as any other product from RWS. But get some of the average
or below average batches, y'er results will be very unsatisfactory.
It's rimfire, welcome to the assembly line lottery.


My last order of Norma Match was throwing high and low strays.
Chronograph showed mv's with more than 80 fps spread hi to low.
Horizontal spread was pretty tight, but vertical was not so good.

Maybe those were iron sight groups. Remington's will group better than that, and I would never put another Remington shell in any of my rifles.
