RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 8x57 JRS

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 8x57 JRS

The 8x57 JRS is a first-class cartridge for combination guns, in particular for double-barrelled rifles. When used in double rifles, it obtains a very rapid shot sequence, because the barrel is not seriously misaligned with the first shot. 

Since there already was an 8x57 IR, the next logical step was to also create a cartridge with rim for break-open rifles in addition to the 8x57 IS with the stronger 8 mm bullets. Well, the 8x57 IRS is the rimmed version of the rimless 8x57 IS. It was introduced in 1905 as well.

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

Bullet RWS EVO Evolution Green
8x57 JRS

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.
