New RWS Loads


    RWS, a hunting and sporting ammunition brand of RUAG Ammotech AG, introduced a number of new rifle cartridges for 2015.

    From the company’s HIT line, RWS introduced four new calibers:

    • .270 Win
    • 8×57 IS (aka 8mm Mauser)
    • 8×85 IRS
    • 8×68 S

    The HIT line of ammunition uses a lead free bullet that is designed for deep penetration and resistance to fragmentation.


    In the Evolution Green line, RWS added another four calibers. They are:

    • 6.5×55
    • 6.5×57
    • 6.5×57 R
    • 6.5×68

    The Evolution Green line of ammunition uses a lead free bullet, but one that will fragment after a dynamic expansion.
