RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre .270 WSM

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre .270 WSM

The .270 WSM is an excellent hunting cartridge for the mountains for chamois, red deer to hunting wild sheep. The .270 WSM can also be used for roe deer and boar. Due to an extended trajectory and high velocity, it is optimally suited for very long shots. 

Winchester introduced the .270 WSM together with the 7 mm WSM and .300 WSM cartridges as the Short Magnum family in 2002. The .325 WSM was added later. The belt-less short cartridge is based on design features of the .404 Jeffery.  Like with the 6 mm PPC, Winchester focused on thick and short cases with the .270 WSM. The case shoulder angle is 35 degrees. The cartridge has a bigger internal volume than the longer .270 Win., for this reason, its performance distinctly exceeds the .270 Win. However, it is less than the .270 Wby. Mag. Its big advantage: The cartridge works well in short systems. Due to its thickness the magazine capacity is often less than with standard calibres.

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

Bullet RWS EVO Evolution Green

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.
