The brand stems from the Rheinisch-Westfälischen Sprengstoff-Fabriken, which passed into the ownership of Dynamit Nobel in 1931 and then under the control of RUAG Ammotec. RWS cartridges have a long history of experience in the development and production, therefore it is not surprising, that their market launch has had an unparalleled success all over the world. Every hunter appreciates deeply the RWS brand and many Olympic victories in target shooting would not have been won without it.
RWS Rifle Cartridges
There is a good reason why RWS rifle cartridges are always the first choice. RWS is the only major manufacturer of rifle cartridges that offers hunting ammunition exclusively from its own production. State-of-the art manufacturing methods ensure excellent dimensional accuracy and a fine surface finish. The extraordinary precision and optimised trajectory of the bullets are impressive.
Many of the RWS employees are skilled hunters who practise hunting at home and abroad. Their valuable experience is always taken into account in the development process and influences every smallest detail of the production flow. This personal commitment is an important part of our fair hunting philosophy: at the crucial moment of firing the hunter can focus on the essential factors and always rely on the perfect effectiveness of the ammunition in accordance with best hunting principles.
