RWS R100 cartridges for rifles
There is a good reason why RWS r100 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.
The RWS r100 is the preferred cartridge of internationally successful sport shooters firing from 50 m and 100 m. RWS r100 rim-fire cartridges have been competition winners for many years, successful at Olympic, International, Championships and Club levels. The high velocities in the supersonic range and excellent precision make the RWS r100 the first choice for silhouette shooting with rifles and pistols.

Use RWS R100 to win
No other sport shooting discipline generates more interest within the media than the biathlon during winter. In combination with physically demanding cross country skiing this sport is gaining in popularity. The shooting stops form the most spectacular appearances of the bi-athletes during the competition. In the midst of their cross country run they stop to fire several shots at a distance of 50 m.
It is hard to imagine how exact the physical and chemical reactions of both ammunition and system of the biathlon rifle must be in order to hit the target accurately. What is said in general terms under the heading of ‘rim-fire cartridges‘ also applies here. However, the demand of bi-athletes for more precise and consistent ammunition is much higher than that of most target shooters. Bi-athletes can never be sure what wind and weather conditions they will encounter but at least they need not worry about the ammunition when using RWS R100. The materials used, the velocity and the arising gas pressure have been fine tuned so that in all weathers an excellent result can be achieved. Even in extreme sub zero temperatures a faultless function is guaranteed and enables outstanding performance.
As official partner of the Swiss National Biathlon Team and numerous German top athletes, RWS ensures that the shooters go into the competition with the best ammunition. Accuracy counts for everything – that’s why we have made a sport of it.
