RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre .30-06

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre .30-06

The .30-06 is probably the most popular universal calibre, which has certainly killed all kinds of game on earth. The effective range of this cartridge, which can be equipped with RWS bullets from 9.7 g up to 13.0 g, is approximately 300 m. 

The cartridge was developed in 1903 and received its final dimensions in 1906, the year it was also introduced as the ordinance cartridge in the USA ("Ball Cartridge, Caliber .30, Model of 1906"). The cartridge fast became very popular as hunting and sport-shooting cartridge. 

The .30-06 Springfield can also be shot well by recoil-sensitive shooters.

RWS centerfire rifle cartridge with Twin-core-bullet

.30-06

The twin-core projectile consists of two lead cores with different hardness and a Tombak jacket. The harder tail core has an additional tough Tombak jacket separating it from the softer tip core. The core weight ratio is 50:50. A tail groove at the rear end of the projectile reliably bonds the tail core with the external jacket. A second groove in the front section forms the sharp rim (impact location hair) and is also the specific breaking point for the front jacket of the projectile. This is an important point for the tearing away of the otherwise obstructive projectile flares. This design ensures a straight shot channel for the important exit hole.

Twin-core-bullet

Construction Twin core-bullet

  1. Harder tail-core for extreme penetration 
  2. Tombac-jacket 
  3. Softer tip-core for controlled fragmentation and high effectiveness 
  4. Sharp edge for sure indications on where the shot was placed on the animal 
  5. Inner Tombac-jacket 
  6. Tail constriction for a mass-stable residual body and a sure bullet exit 
  7. Long bullet cylinder for highest precision
