In terms of quality there can be no compromise when it comes to rifle cartridges. Therefore for Premium Ammunition, RWS follows a consistent procedure, from the initial idea in product development, through manufacture of the cartridge, up to the final control as part of quality assurance. This means that all the high-quality components, from the percussion cap cases, shells, powder and bullets, undergo a fully-controlled production process before assembling the perfectly- tuned components.
All our rifle cartridges are then submitted to a mechanical, laser-guided or manual quality check. There are over a 100 production stages, each with its associated quality assurance procedures, before an RWS rifle cartridge is deemed to meet our requirements and released for distribution.
RWS is the only major manufacturer of rifle cartridges world-wide exclusively offering hunting bullets from its own production. Moreover, RWS probably has the largest range of bullets and calibres.

We have been offering a very wide range of hunting shot cartridges under the Rottweil brand name for many decades. When it comes to high-quality shotgun cartridges, everything from powder to shot load must interact with precision in order to achieve the required range, pattern and effect on the game to be bagged. The application-specific design of Rottweil shotgun cartridges and the use of selected and continuously-monitored components, provide the safety you would expect from a renowned German manufacturer.
Generations of hunters have been able to experience the achievement of a successful shotgun shooting throughout their career. That’s why the discerning hunter chooses Rottweil shotgun cartridges, because he knows how important the ammunition is for a successful, expert hunting experience.
Our range of Rottweil shotgun cartridges is classified according to a clearly defined lines system. Shotgun cartridges with comparable qualities and a similar range are grouped together within these lines. To make it even clearer, an eye-catching colour coding system is used to identify each individual line and to visually link products within a line. For hunting we have identified 5 different lines. You can also easily identify these lines on this website: Premium, Professional, Basic, Extra, and Steel. There is also the red Competition Line of sporting shotgun cartridges.
With the new Silver Selection, RWS is offering a unique line of shotgun cartridges which is, in many respects, unrivalled. Used here for the first time, Performance Booster Technology offers many practically-oriented advantages. These include a notably increased stopping effect due to the higher energy output of the nickel-plated shot, perfect covering with a particularly tight shot load, higher shot speed as well as larger shooting distances. And all this comes with significantly reduced recoil.
As the leading provider of airgun pellets, the RWS brand name guarantees excellent quality worldwide. Decades of experience in manufacturing Diabolos has given us an impressive edge. All RWS airgun pellets are characterised by optimal composition, a special surface finish and optimized weight.
All the RWS competition pellets are manufactured in the classical Diabolo shape. Head guidance, tail part and the special shape of the ball head are crucial for optimal stabilization of the ball within the gun barrel and in this way ensure sharply-punched shot holes.
Extremely tight production tolerances as well as strict quality control ensure constant optimization in terms of the precision of our products. With five clearly defined product lines, we make it easier for you to make the right choice for each area of application. Whether for shooting in international competitions or at club level, training or popular sports - RWS air gun pellets always stand for absolute reliability and precision.
