RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre .308 Win.

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre .308 Win.

As a hunting cartridge the .308 Win. is very suitable for medium-sized game up to medium red deer and wild boar. The strong points of this cartridge are the high universality, the high internal precision and the pleasant shooting behaviour. 

Due to its high precision, the .308 Win. is also optimally suitable for sport shooting at long distances. 

This cartridge replaced the .30-06 Springfield as ordinance cartridge in the USA and NATO adopted this cartridge as well. As a civil cartridge it was available virtually at the same time. 

Apart from its use in repeating rifles, the .308 Win. is also excellent for self-loading rifles.

RWS .308 Win. Short Rifle - hunting ammunition for short barrels

More and more hunters have come to appreciate the advantages of a short and handy barrel. This trend is fueled by the increased use of silencers.

As is generally known, standard ammunition is formulated for use in the most commonly encountered barrel length of 600 mm. Firing standard ammunition out of 420 - 550 mm barrels has several disadvantages: Loss of velocity and energy, reduced effective range, dazzling muzzle flash, increased muzzle blast and accelerated silencer wear. 

That is why RWS has developed a cartridge tailored specifically for use in short-barreled rifles. This means that shooting a short-barreled rifle no longer means giving up long-barrel performance.
