RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre .308 Win.

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre .308 Win.

As a hunting cartridge the .308 Win. is very suitable for medium-sized game up to medium red deer and wild boar. The strong points of this cartridge are the high universality, the high internal precision and the pleasant shooting behaviour. 

Due to its high precision, the .308 Win. is also optimally suitable for sport shooting at long distances. 

This cartridge replaced the .30-06 Springfield as ordinance cartridge in the USA and NATO adopted this cartridge as well. As a civil cartridge it was available virtually at the same time. 

Apart from its use in repeating rifles, the .308 Win. is also excellent for self-loading rifles.
