RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre .243 Win.

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre .243 Win.

The .243 Win. is a very accurate but load-sensitive cartridge, which can be well used as a roe deer and fox hunting cartridge, as well as for chamois in Austria (not allowed in Germany). The .243 Win. offers a balanced performance ratio for hunting these types of game. 

The .243 Win. is based on the case of the .308 Win. Anyone who wants to carry a standard rifle in 6 mm calibre for hunting is well advised with the .243 Win.

RWS centerfire rifle cartridge with Soft point-bullet

.243 Win.

A well-proven projectile type still favoured by many today. High to very high energy output in game. Somewhat stronger fragmentation, therefore exit holes are not always present. Very good stopping effect. Frequently used in battues because of the above reasons and because of a certain insensitivity to minor obstacles. With round or pointed projectile tip.

Soft point-bullet

Construction soft point-bullet

  1. Lead core for optimal adaption of the deformation to the game's body 
  2. Round or pointed bullet tip for high stability 
  3. Tombac-plated steel jacket
