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.

RWS Büchsenpatrone mit SPEED TIP PROFESSIONAL Geschoss

RWS SPEED TIP PRO Bullet
.308 Win.

The .338 Lapua Magnum long-range caliber is becoming increasingly popular. On the one hand, rapid technological advances in firearms and optics has made it possible to shoot and hunt at ever greater ranges. On the other hand, ammunition used on hunting trips has to be suitable for a variety of distances and game weights. High penetration and stopping power is indispensable, for instance, when hunting in mountains or for large African game.

RWS has now developed a hunting bullet for this high-velocity caliber that reliably covers distances ranging from close by to over 400m that can also handle a variety of game weights. The RWS SPEED TIP PROFESSIONAL is one of the latest developments from RWS meant to provide a very high shock/stopping effect even at long-range. The streamlined shape of the RWS SPEED TIP PROFESSIONAL projectile is topped off with a Speed Tip nose to assure reduced air resistance and thereby provide for an extremely flat trajectory. This novel bullet tip ensures accuracy and maximum instantaneous effect even at longer ranges. The bullet employs a V-tail, which also assures increased accuracy and stability in flight over long distances.

The SPEED TIP PROFESSIONAL was designed for a wide range of uses through its dual-core lead construction based on the proven H-shell principle that employs a slightly softer, rapidly fragmenting front core and a harder, fast penetrating tail core. The nickel-plated, mild carbon steel casing also ensures that the expanding segment of the projectile retains a high degree of form integrity so that it is able to produce a good exit wound and a clear blood trail even in larger game!

That's what makes the RWS SPEED TIP PROFESSIONAL the ideal design for this particular caliber in terms stopping power, penetrating effect and long-range effectiveness.  

Advantages at a glance:

  • High-velocity ballistics. Extremely flat trajectory together with very high velocity makes it possible to hunt at very long range. This is achieved through the projectile's long-range form, including in particular its Speed Tip and V-tail.  
  • Extreme knock-down power. Quick response in the body of game is achieved through the Speed Tip with its integrated hollow point and the quick-fragmenting front core. The harder tail core provides for guaranteed penetration power. When used in hunting, this results in significantly reduced game flight and good exit wounds with clear blood trails.  
  • High precision. Unmatched precision is a prerequisite for long-range hits. This is guaranteed by the precision V-Tail and the bullet's nickel-plated finish.
