News 2017 of the RWS centerfire rifle cartridges for hunting:
1. RWS 10.3 x 68 Mag. - The new dimension: universal cartridge for every hunting occasion
We present a true world first this year: The 10.3 x 68 Mag. We have completely redefined the magnum cartridge through a modern synthesis of the legendary RWS 68 case length and the traditional 10.3 mm bullet diameter. The reduced length of the case to 68 mm creates the basis for a very balanced, good-natured round with a unique range of potential bullet weights between 11 g and 26 g. Depending on the requirements, the performance range lies between a .30-06 and a .416 Rem. In this way, the 10.3 x 68 Mag. covers a unique spectrum and is suited to hunting anything from the groundhog to the African buffalo. Benefits at a glance of RWS 10.3 x 68 Mag.:
•Bullet profile Plus +
The 10.3 x 68 Mag. and its larger profile provides up to 81% more stopping power compared to conventional medium calibers with comparable recoil. In combination with a modern bullet design, the efficacy of the caliber increases and can be adapted to any game.
•SMART MAGNUMTM effect
The 10.3 x 68 Mag. redefines comfortable shooting in the magnum class and expands the useful range of magnum cartridges into an entirely new dimension. Regardless of impact velocity, the enlarged cross-sectional area assures an extraordinarily great shock effect in the body of the game animal.
•One calibre for everything
Whether after Austrian marmot or African Cape buffalo, the 10.3 x 68 Mag. is one caliber for everything. Bullet weights from 11 to 26 grams are practicable in no other caliber and they cover almost every hunting situation, whether in your home hunting grounds or on foreign hunting trips.
RWS 10,3 x 68 Mag.: Available bullets
As of market release, RWS is offering two highly effective expanding bullets with tried-and-tested dual-core technologies from the intended bullet spectrum, one with lead and one lead-free.
The lead-based RWS Speed Tip Pro 10.3 x 68 Mag. at 18.5g is one of the latest developments from RWS. This round offers guaranteed stopping power and a broad range of potential applications. The compact punching core, which ensures an exit wound, rounds out the package. It is suited to all hoofed game, and most ideal for medium to very strong game.
The RWS EVO Green 10,3 x 68 Mag. at 13.5 g provides an effective, lead-free alternative. It is characterized by its high speed with a flat trajectory, a powerful instantaneous effect and a sure exit wound. The comparatively low bullet weight has low recoil, ensuring the pleasant shooting character of the 10.3 x 68. It is useful for all hoofed game and represents a clever, lead-free alternative.
RWS is already planning to expand the bullet selection.
It's a Magnum, a SmartMagnumTM - our slogan for the new RWS 10.3 x 68 Mag.
2. RWS SPEED TIP PROFESSIONAL - Now available in calibers .300 Win. Mag., .30-06, .308 Win.
Last year, we introduced the SPEED TIP PRO bullet for the .338 Lapua Magnum long-range caliber. The advantages of the new bullet have quickly made it popular among hunters, and there is great demand for other calibers. As a result, RWS now is now adding .30 caliber to its product range. Thanks to its design, the bullet is suitable for short and long-range shooting. SPEED TIP PRO.30 caliber bullets are reliable even at distances of over 300 meters, conveying sufficient energy to the target and a correspondingly high level of shock and stopping power.

3. RWS EVO GREEN - The clever alternative also in caliber 9,3 x 64
The 9.3 x 64 caliber is a new addition to our extensive product range. The results of the hunting test were exceptional. The lead-free cartridge demonstrates very good performance across the entire spectrum of European game - from roe deer to heavy wild boar. The relatively light EVO GREEN bul-let gives the 9.3 x 64 caliber a very rapid ballistic, which further expands the potential use of this cali-ber. The light bullet makes this caliber - which normally has a somewhat intense recoil - very com-fortable when shooting.
