RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 9,3x74 R

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 9,3x74 R

The 9.3x74 R is an excellent large game cartridge for break-open guns, no matter whether break-open rifle, over-and-under rifle drilling, drilling or double rifle. In combination guns hunters like to use it with a smaller cartridge suitable for roe deer (e. g. in a barrel insert). It can be shot well from light weapons, and it is especially appreciated as a drive hunting cartridge in double rifles or double rifle drillings. 

The 9.3x74 R is the companion version of the 9.3x62, and they both were introduced at about the same time at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century. The performance of the two cartridges is practically identical.

RWS Rifle Cartridge with HIT Bullet (lead-free, stable-mass)

9,3x74 R

This brand new RWS HIT bullet was developed as a lead-free alternative for hunters who prefer to use non-fragmenting rounds. Despite this new lead-free bullet’s quick response, the expanding segment retains a stable mass. This guarantees deep penetration and reliable exiting even at high impact velocities and/or greater target resistances - such as hits on bone. The bullet’s superior properties fully come into play when used on larger game.  

In contrast to a fragmentation round, the lead-free and stable-mass RWS HIT bullet releases its kinetic energy in the body of the target through 100 % non-fragmentation. As a consequence, you can get the most out of the game you take down.  

As with all RWS rifle cartridges, the new HIT round also combines the usual advantages associated with our brand: it’s reliably effective, precise, causes less wear and tear on the barrel and is cutting-edge in design. RWS HIT Matrix – our cutting-edge bullet design:  

RWS TC Tip (bullet tip with 2 hollow chambers)The innovative bullet tip from RWS HIT serves two important functions: Its streamlined shape gives it has an improved BC value and longer trajectory. That, in turn, means: higher bullet velocity and greater impact energy.The interaction between the two hollow chambers produces lightning fast expansion across the entire front-end of the bullet. That guarantees a high shock effect and ensures game is brought down on the spot.  

RWS ACC (hollow-point bullet design)The Active Crater Cavity (ACC) provides for optimum absorption of the initial deformation triggered by the TC tip, which acts to further accelerate the deformation process. This results in perfect, fragment-free expansion with predetermined spreading immediately upon impact.

RWS HIT

Structure of the HIT bullet   

  1. RWS ACC (Active Crater Cavity) for actively accelerated mushrooming and high shock effect
  2. RWS TC tip (Twin Compression Tip): with 2 cavities for initial deformation and flat trajectory
  3. Nickel-plated, solid copper projectile with extremely high BC value
  4. Boat tail base for flexibility and in-flight stability
  5. Performance grooves for better delivery
