RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 8x68 S

The 8x68 S is a first-class cartridge for all mountain game up to argali or elk. But it is also ideal for "plains game" hunting in the African savannas. With bullet weights from 9.0 g to 14.5 g the cartridge can be used universally worldwide for heavy cloven-hoofed game. The 8x68 S is a highly accurate cartridge, which due to its high velocity is optimally suited for long distances. 

The cartridge was developed by RWS in 1939, and is also called a belt-less magnum cartridge. It represents a different performance class than the 8 mm standard cartridge 8x57 JS. 

Due to its high velocity, the 8x68 S in particular increases the effective range. As a rule, the effectiveness of the 8x68 S is somewhat better than with calibre .30 Magnum cartridges.
