The IWA OutdoorClassics is taking place from March 8–11, 2019. This is the leading international expo for the hunting and sports shooting sectors, as well as for outdoor equipment and accessories for civilian uses and law enforcement. It’s also a gathering point for the industry’s prestigious manufacturers and dealers, who take the opportunity to present their latest products alongside proven classics to a discerning audience. So it is no surprise that the IWA gets the hearts of passionate hunters and shooters beating faster every year. However, admission to the Nuremberg expo grounds is restricted to professional visitors and accredited dealers. There is no need to worry though: Visit this page to catch up with the latest news from the ROTTWEIL shotgun shell segment for hunting.
ROTTWEIL GAME EDITION: Shotgun shells developed for the specific requirements of game
ROTTWEIL GAME EDITION was launched as a resounding success two years ago. This comes as no surprise since the components and the performance of the cartridges are optimised with regard to the power distribution and therefore the striking impact to kill particular game species. The fine-tuning of every individual cartridge was achieved through intensive testing and a new measurement and evaluation procedure. Lighter game species require less shot pattern energy whilst heavy game species require more - the combination of energy transfer and shot pattern. The area covered by of the hunted game is also of key importance.
With certain small game species, GAME EDITION cartridges produce far more shot pattern energy within common shooting distances than would be needed for an expertly taken shot. This gives the shooter the reassuring feeling of being able to fall back on energy reserves - such as when the shot is not precisely directed at the body of the animal, when furred game is flighty and evasive, when feathered game is fast flying, or if the shooting range is at the limits of the cartridge’s range. Our proven GAME EDITION shotshell therefore guarantees the best possible success when shooting at small game.
And this year, the range will be further expanded with the following calibers:
3x ROTTWEIL GAME EDITION caliber 20/70
1x ROTTWEIL GAME EDITION ROTHUHN caliber 12/70
ROTTWEIL GAME EDITION: new shotgun shells for small game hunting
The caliber 20 is currently undergoing something of a renaissance, as the lower weight and superior control of the shotgun can combine to make firing much easier. We are therefore following this trend with the launch of the ROTTWEIL GAME EDITION in caliber 20. Cartridges specially designed for the quarry in question are available in this caliber for DUCK, PIGEON and PHEASANT.
The range is also being extended to include a special 12/70 cartridge for hunting red-legged partridge, grey partridge and ptarmigan (according to the region). What’s more, all these new products are already commercially available.
The new shotshells have also been optimised in their energy output and distribution for the requirements of hunting the small game species mentioned above. They offer game-specific shot pattern energy advantages for short, medium and long-range shots and thereby guarantee the best possible success in shooting.
However, the advantages of the GAME EDITION cartridges are not only in their killing impact on particular game species compared with non-specialist cartridges - they also stand out from the crowd visually. The new design of the cartridges and the packaging with its attractive imagery of the game species to be hunted are not just eye-catching but also help to orientate the consumer when purchasing the correct cartridges.
