RWS HIT .30 calibre available now

Previously RWS had only been represented in the lead-free segment by the extremely successful EVO GREEN bullet. Even at long distances this is an extremely precise part-fragmentation projectile which naturally fragments on impact. Now RWS is releasing a second lead-free hunting bullet.

So we asked what makes this new lead-free product by RWS so special? The HIT bullet by RWS possesses a form and mass-stable residual body and hence delivers a particularly deep impact – especially for bone hits. As always, the developers focused on the humane treatment of game, which is ensured thanks to the new non-fragmenting deformation bullet.

The manufacturer has stated that the lightning-quick ballistics with flat trajectory, high velocity and energy transfer on impact guarantee an immediate disabling effect. The so-called RWS HIT matrix is responsible for this, offering a specially engineered bullet tip.
