A local-global sequence for Chow groups of zero-cycles involving Brauer groups has been conjectured to be exact for all proper smooth algebraic varieties.We apply existing methods to construct several new families of varieties verifying the exact sequence. The examples are explicit, they are normic bundles over the projective space.
