.22 Hornet
Calibre - This cartridge, which has been available since 1930, is based on an older black powder cartridge the.22 WCF (Winchester Center Fire). It is outstandingly suited for barrel adapters in combination guns, since it does not place a particularly large stress on the chamber. It is therefore often the maximum caliber that can be used for barrel adapters in older drillings. For hunting, it is still...
Silver Selection
Flash Control: for less muzzle flash. The flash control technology of the silver selection is an innovation, RWS have succeeded in reducing the muzzle flash to a minimum. This enables the hunter, even in total darkness, to maintain a better sight overview. Even the usage of the Silver Selection during daylight has been further improved and the performance optimised. The Silver Selection is one of the...
.222 REM
Caliber - This cartridge was introduced in 1950 and represents a new development from the Remington drawing board. The low-recoil, high-precision cartridge was soon well established. It is used for bench rest shooting just as for hunting. In other words, it is popular as a cartridge for both target shooting and hunting. For hunting, the cartridge is best loaded with a 3.24 gram bullet. This produces...
.223 REM
Caliber - Originally, the .223 Rem. was the successor to the 7.62 Nato (.308 Win.) as a military cartridge. However, Remington brought it out almost immediately as a civilian cartridge. This cartridge, when loaded with a 3.56 gram bullet shows its best performance on roe deer and fox. The performance and hunting applications are practically identical to the.222 Rem, although the .223 Rem. is a bit...
 
5.6 x 50 Mag
Three years after the introduction of the 5.6 x 50 R Magnum, the rimless version 5.6 x 50 Magnum for repeating rifles was put on the market. In Germany, the highly accurate 5.6 x 50 Magnum can be very well used on roe deer up to a distance of more than 200 m. The very good instantaneous effectiveness speaks for this cartridge with the 4.1 g soft-point bullets with pointed tip. RCF2116499 - SP 63G
5.6 x 50R Magnum
The creator of this cartridge, which was introduced in 1968, was the engineer G. Frères, who wanted to create a rimmed cartridge that was especially suitable for roe deer. This cartridge is roughly comparable with the .222 Rem. Mag. or .223 Rem. It is in effect a .222 Rem. that has been made about 7mm longer. Being a rimmed cartridge, it is predestined for top-break guns. It is an excellent...
5.6 x 52 R
Due to its high precision, the calibre 5.6 x 52 R is very well suited for hunting fox and roe deer up to a distance of approximately 170 m. This cartridge achieves especially good results with the 4.6 g RWS soft-point bullets. The 5.6 x 52 R is a very accurate cartridge with excellent effectiveness and high preservation of the game's meat. In many places, this cartridge is considered to be the ideal...
5.6 x 57
This cartridge was introduced by RWS in 1964, for use on roe deer, chamois and fox up to a distance of about 250 meters. The point-blank range of 206 meters allows this accurate RWS cartridge to be used at very long distance, particularly as the wind drift is also less than for other cartridges in 5.6mm caliber that have a low bullet velocity. In this instance, the heavy 4.8 gram KS bullet provides...
 
.243 WIN
The .243 Win. is based on the case of the .308 Win. Anyone who wants to carry a standard gun in a 6mm caliber should be well satisfied with the .243 Win. It is a very accurate cartridge that is good for use on roe deer and fox, and chamois in Austria (not permitted in Germany). It is, however, a load-sensitive cartridge. The .243 Win. provides a balanced performance for hunting these types of game....
6.5 x 55
In 1894, both Sweden and Norway adopted this cartridge as their standard military cartridge. Nowadays, this cartridge is highly popular around the world, as a hunting and target shooting cartridge at distances up to 300 meters. It is a highly dynamic cartridge with a flat trajectory. The intrinsic accuracy is excellent. As a hunting cartridge it is very suitable for all medium to light red deer or...
6.5 x 57
The 6.5x57 was developed as a pure hunting cartridge, and is predominantly suited to hunting grounds with a lot of roe deer and occasional heavier game. It is a very good cartridge for roe deer and medium-sized game, such as moufflon or fallow deer. The available projectiles range from the light 6.0 gram TMS bullet to the heavy 9.1 DK bullet. With these, the 6.5x57 can handle long distances as well...

6.5 x 65 RWS
This cartridge was brought out together with its rimmed companion cartridge in 1990. It is a very fast, high-power cartridge in 6.5mm caliber. The 8.2 gram KS makes an all-round bullet for the 6.5x65 RWS. Using the KS, one can sensibly cover the entire hunting spectrum - for medium-sized game from the chamois up to fallow deer. The 6.5x65 RWS is highly suitable for hunting in the mountains - from...
6.5 x 65R RWS
This cartridge is the rimmed version of the 6.5x65 RWS. It is suitable for top-break rifles. The 6.5x65R RWS is higly suited for lightweight top-break rifles. This means that it is ideal for the mountains. In a superposed combination or a drilling it is furthermore ideal for hunting grounds with roe deer and medium-sized large game. RCF2116987 - CP 127G Note to dealers: Some rounds may be special...
6.5 x 68
The 6.5x68 was presented as a high-power cartridge as early as 1940. With the 6 gram soft-point spitzer it is possible to achieve a velocity of 1150 m/sec. So the 6.5x68 is a really fast cartridge with a very flat trajectory and especially suited for very long shots. The 8.2 gram KS bullet is suitable as a universal bullet in the high-velocity 6.5x68. This cartridge is predestined for mountain hunts...
.270 WIN
The performance data for the .270 WInchester are very balanced. It is a highly accurate cartridge that is quite pleasent to shoot. Nevertheles, this cartridge, which is based on the case of the .30-06 Springfield and was introduced in 1925, is not a cartridge for really large or even aggressive animals. It remains a cartridge for light to medium game from roe deer through chamois to moufflon. The .270...
 
.270 WSM
The .270 WSM was introduced by Winchester as a member of the Short Magnum family in 2002, together with the 7mm WSM and .300 WSM. The .325 WSM was added some time later. This is a beltless cartridge, based on design features of the .404 Jeffery. As with the 6mm PPC, short, fat cases were utilized. The shoulder angle is 35 degrees. This cartridge has a larger internal volume than the somewhat longer...
7 X 57
The 7x57 was introduced by Mauser in 1892. It was originally a military cartridge that rapidly became popular as a hunting cartridge. The renowned professional hunter "Karamojo" Bell used it to kill a large number of elephants, presumably under ideal conditions. Nevertheless, by today`s standards it is neither a big-game cartridge nor one for large, heavy game. The cartridge is suitable for use on...
7 X 57R
This is the rimmed version of the 7x57, and was introduced in 1893. It was developed for combination hunting rifles. With regard to the useful range (up to around 180 meters), rapidly deforming projectiles are to be preferred, such as simple soft-point bullets or the DK, KS or HMK types. But RWS would like to emphasize the widespread use of the 7x57R, with 8 available loads. These cover the range from...
7mm REM MAG
The 7mm Rem. Mag. is a very good and highly accurate cartridge up to 300 meters. Its field of application primarily covers medium sized game up to 150 kg live weight. It is a very good cartridge for use in the mountains, thanks to the flat trajectory, and is ideal for hunting chamois, ibex and moufflon.

.280 REM
This cartridge, brought out by Remington in 1957, has a performance that is very similar to the 7x64. It is a very accurate cartridge, based on the case of the .30-06 Springfield, and is often to be found in self-loading rifles. The flat trajectory makes it good for hunting in the mountains, which explains why it is often the first choice for light repeating rifles for hunting moufflon in North America. RCF2117401...
7 X 64
The 7x64 is an all-round cartridge for Central Europe. It can be used in the mountains just as well as for short-range hunting in the woods. It is a well-balanced high-power medium cartridge with a flat trajectory. The wide range of projectiles that is available means that the cartridge can be adapted very well to all kinds of hunting. The 7x64 is suitable for medium to heavy hoofed game. It is ideal...
7 X 65R
This cartridge came on the market in 1920, following the rapid success of the 7x64. This is the rimmed cartridge equivalent of the 7x64, and is therefore predestined for top-break guns. It is an ideal choice for combination guns as well as top-break rifles. It is an outstanding cartridge at distance to beyond 200 meters. So it can cover the range from roe deer to red deer very well. With the 8.0 gram...
.308 WIN
This cartridge was the successor to the .30-06 as the standard US military cartridge. It was also adopted by NATO. It was almost immediately made available as a civil cartridge. The .308 is used not only in repeating rifles, but is also excellently suited to self-loading rifles. It is a highly precise cartridge, and eminently suited to long-distance target shooting. And as a hunting cartridge it is...
 
30-06
This cartridge was developed in 1903, and the dimensions were finalized in 1906, the year in which it was adopted as the standard military cartridge by the USA (as "Ball Cartridge, Caliber .30, Model of 1906"). It soon became popular for hunting and target shooting. Today it is probably the most popular universal caliber, which has been used for hunting all possible types of game around the world....
.30R Blaser
The .30R Blaser was developed as a joint project of the gun manufacturer Blaser and RWS. It was presented by RWS in 1991 as the first caliber .30 rimmed cartridge. The .30 R Blaser fulfilled the wish to be able to fire .30 cal. bullets out of all types of break-top guns. It is ideal for hunting in the mountains as well as being an all-round cartridge for Central European hunting grounds. Its area of...
.300 WIN MAG
This magnum was introduced in 1963, and has achieved worldwide success. Unlike other magnum cartridges, which up to then had been much longer, the .300 Win. Mag. has a short body, is very accurate, and is pleasant to shoot. Shots can be taken well beyond 300 meters. It goes beyond the useful range of the .30-06 Springfield. And like the .30-06, it is suitable for all types of medium to heavy hoofed...
.300WSM
The .300 WSM was the first member of the family of beltless Winchester Short Magnums. The design is based on the .404 Jeffery. It has a large-diameter case and short body length. This makes it possible for the .300 WSM to come close to the performance of the .300 Win. Mag. in short systems. The optimum case dimensions give the .300 WSM a high accuracy potential and a flat trajectory. The .300 WSM is...
 
.375 H&H Magnum
The .375 H&H Magnum Is a belted cartridge that was developed by the English gunmakers Holland & Holland, and introduced in 1912. It is eminently suited to repeating rifles, but is also found in double-barrelled rifles. The .375 H&H Mag. Is an outstanding cartridge for hunting very big game abroad. It thus became a universal cartridge in Africa, especially for hunting plains game. Compared...
8 x 57 JS
This cartridge was derived from the older 8x57I by increasing the bullet diameter from 0.318 to 0.323" (from 8.08 to 8.20 mm), and adding an to the designation. It was introduced in 1905, and soon found the approval of hunters. It is a first-class cartridge for distances up to around 180 meters, and ideal for hunting in the woods and for driven hunts. The 8x57IS is also an excellent cartridge for hoofed...
8 x 57 JRS
Since there already was an 8x57IR, the next logical step was to create a rimmed cartridge to match the 8x57IS that used the thicker 8 mm bullets, for use in top-break guns. So the 8x57IRS is the companion to the rimless 8x57IS, and was also introduced in 1905. It is a first-class cartridge for combination guns, especially double-barreled rifles. One can achieve a very rapid shot sequence in double...
8 x 68 S
This cartridge was developed by RWS in 1939, and can be described as a magnum cartridge without a belt. It represents a higher power class than the standard 8x57IS cartridge. Thanks to its high velocity, the 8x68S permits an increase in the usable range. This is a first-class cartridge for all mountain game up to Argali or Wapiti. But it is also ideal for "plains game" hunting in the African savannas....
 
9.3 x 62
The 9.3x62 was developed around 1905, and was especially intended for use in the German colonies in Africa. However, the cartridge was very soon being used with great success on large game in Central Europe, particularly on elk, roe deer and wild boar, so it was not restricted to being an "African" cartridge. The 9.3x62 is ideal for hunting in the woods - in other words, for medium distances. The RWS...
9.3 x 64
This is a powerful caliber for large and big game, with outstanding characteristics and extraordinarily good accuracy. And the effect of this highly accurate cartridge on heavy game is very good, whether on red deer, wild boar or antelope. In spite of relatively heavy bullets, the 9,3x64 has a fairly flat trajectory and permits shots beyond 200 meters. RCF2119250 - UNI CLASSIC 293G Note to dealers:...
9.3 X 74R
The 9.3x74R can be considered the companion to the 9.3x62, and they were both introduced at about the same time, at the turn of the 19th-20th century. The two cartridges have practically identical performance. This is a first-class large-game cartridge for top-break guns, whether single top-break, superposed drilling, normal drilling or double-barreled rifle. In combination guns it is frequently used...
.404 RIMLESS
This cartridge, by Jeffery, was introduced in 1910, with the designation "404 Rimless Nitro Express". These days, the cartridge is also know as the .404 Jeffery. In Europe, the metric designation 10.75 x 73 is more frequently found. The bullet diameter of 0.423" (= 10.74 mm) is larger than the .416 caliber. It was created as a high-power big-game cartridge, and can thus be used on any game on this...
