RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 8x57 JS

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 8x57 JS

The 8x57 JS is a first-class cartridge for distances up to about 180 m. It is ideal for hunting in the woods and as cartridge for drive hunting. It is also a first-class large game cartridge for Central European game. It is readily used as a universal cartridge there. As a rule, there is less haematoma formation than with rapid smaller calibres

The 8x57 JS was developed from the old military cartridge 8x57 J by increasing the bullet diameter from .318 to .323" (8.08 / 8.20 mm), and an "S" was added to the designation. It was introduced in 1905 and the hunters soon appreciated it.

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

Bullet RWS EVO Evolution Green
8x57 JS

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.
