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.

.30-06

Following on from the ID Classic, the UNI Classic was developed especially for heavy cloven game up to big game. This version reaches into the front softer part with its tip. This means that the projectile mushrooms less but the penetration force is.
