Due to the excellent response to the market launch of the Short Rifle cartridges and the high demand, the Short Rifle series is being expanded by the following loads: .308 Win. EVO GREEN, .30-06 EVO GREEN und 8x57 IS SPEED TIP PROFESSIONAL.
The trend of carrying short-barrelled weapons is continuing and enjoying increasing popularity. It is also being encouraged through the growing use of silencers.
As is generally known, standard ammunition is formulated for use in the most commonly encountered barrel length of 600 mm. Firing standard ammunition out of 420 - 550 mm barrels has several disadvantages: Loss of velocity and energy, reduced effective range, dazzling muzzle flash, increased muzzle blast and accelerated silencer wear. That is why RWS has developed a cartridge tailored specifically for use in short-barreled rifles. This means that shooting a short-barreled rifle no longer means giving up long-barrel performance.
