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 centerfire rifle cartridge with Twin-core-bullet

.308 Win.

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

  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
