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. With bullets weighing from 11.7 to 14.5 grams, it can be used on heavy hoofed game around the world. The 8x68S is usually more effective on the target than the .30-caliber magnum cartridges. It is a very accurate cartridge and, thanks to the high velocity, eminently suitable for long distances.
