RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 10,3x68 Mag.

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 10,3x68 Mag.

The consistency of properties found in the 10.3×68 Mag. and the blend of proven tradition with state-of-the-art technology open up entirely new opportunities. The large projectile profile, its variable weights and the jaw-dropping stopping power with a pleasant recoil behavior are what make this caliber unique.

The 10.3 projectile diameter also ticked all the boxes for cutting-edge hunting requirements when attached to the legendary 68 RWS case length. The underlying idea of the 10.3×68 Mag. was to design an extremely balanced and harmonious cartridge with a unique range of possible projectile weights between 11 g and 26 g by reducing the case length to 68 mm.

RWS centerfire rifle cartridge with Evolution Green-bullet (lead-free, part fragmentation)

Bullet RWS EVO Evolution Green
10,3x68 Mag.

Both cores of the new lead-free EVOLUTION GREEN bullet are made of food-safe metal. The new lead-free EVOLUTION GREEN bullet is especially effective given its outstanding responsiveness. This is achieved through a specially pre-fragmented front core made of tin and the use of RWS' new Speed Tip bullet points which enable an impressive shock effect. This will guarantee humane and successful hunting.

Even at long ranges, the EVOLUTION GREEN offers impressive killing effect. With conventional designs, there is a tangible decrease in deformation capability at long distances. Not so with EVO GREEN. Here, this effect is noticeably reduced thanks to the intelligent design of the projectile.

An optimised bullet form (high BC) and the speed tip ensure a flat trajectory with high levels of speed and energy. 

The stable tail body ensures a guaranteed exit wound for reliable blood flow. The sharp edge also delivers the desired clean cut.
