The original Norma load was never advertised by Norma all that much higher than any other round.
I bought a couple of boxes of 200gr Norma ammo, and chrono'd the rounds from one box; none of them was moving much faster than 1000fps.
Without changing the ballistics info on the box, still says [email protected], Norma was the first of the water-downers.
Apparently, the original, circa 1983 ammo has a letter stamped on the primer cup, while the later, weaker rounds don't.
