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.
Runs off at the mouth about anything 1911 related on this site and half the time is flat out wrong.
