The expanded range of new calibers is entering the next phase.

In the last few years, RWS launched the SPEED TIP PROFESSIONAL bullet on the market for the long-range caliber .338 Lapua Magnum and in the calibers .30, 7 mm and 8 mm. The modern, highly effective bullet is an evolution of the proven H-jacket technology and has quickly won hunters over. In order to meet the great demand for additional calibers, RWS is now offering the bullet in the calibers 9.3x62 and 6.5x55 SE, in 6.5 Creedmoor, and in the 8x57 JS Short Rifle line.

RWS SPEED TIP PROFESSIONAL: The expanded range of new calibers is entering the next phase

Due to its modern construction, the bullet is equally designed for both short and long range shooting distances. Even at longer distances, the SPEED TIP PROFESSIONAL is reliable and delivers sufficient energy into the target; the shocking and stopping power is correspondingly high.

The aerodynamic bullet shape of the RWS SPEED TIP PROFESSIONAL ends at the nose with its Speed Tip bullet tip. This ensures minimal air resistance, high velocity and in this way an extremely flat trajectory. It ensures precise shooting and a maximal instantaneous effect even at a long range. The back of the bullet has a V-tail, which also makes for increased accuracy and stability over long distances. The optimal design of the SPEED TIP PROFESSIONAL guarantees the best precision and a very flat trajectory. Shots fired into soap at 300 m proved its superior long-range capability. In contrast to conventional semi-jacketed bullets, the SPEED TIP PROFESSIONAL still responds quickly and demonstrates top-notch effectiveness.

With a wide range of uses, the SPEED TIP PROFESSIONAL bullet harmonizes a fragmentation bullet with a dual-core lead construction, based on the proven H-shell principle. The somewhat softer fast-acting front core of the bullet has a longitudinal bore that is sealed with a plastic tip. Upon impact, the plastic tip is forced into the longitudinal bore, causing the bullet to expand rapidly. The front core breaks apart into fragments within the animal’s body, leading to extensive internal injuries. This results in an instantaneous effect and short flight distances. The harder rear core with its strong punching power consists of alloyed, hardened lead. The nickel-plated, soft steel jacket ensures that the expanding segment of the projectile retains a high degree of form integrity so that it is able to produce a good exit wound and a clear blood trail even in larger game!

The benefits at a glance:

  • High-velocity ballistics. Extremely flat trajectory together with very high velocity makes it possible to hunt at very long range. This is achieved through the projectile's long-range form, including in particular its speed tip and V-tail.
  • Extreme knock-down power. Quick response in the body of game is achieved through the high-speed front tip with its integrated hollow point and the rapidly fragmenting core. The harder tail core provides guaranteed penetration power. When used in hunting, this results in significantly reduced game flight and good exit wounds with clear blood trails.
  • High precision. Unmatched precision is a prerequisite for long-range hits. This is guaranteed by the precision V-Tail and the bullet's nickel-plated finish.
