RWS 7x75mm

It seems that the 7x57mm Mauser cartridge has reached the end of the after 121 years. In the USA the similar 7mm-08 Rem has ousted the 7x57mm Mauser because it is loaded to better ballistics. All the German-speaking companies such as Blaser, Mannlicher, Mauser, Sauer and Steyr have already dropped it from their product line-ups in favor of the 7x64mm Brenneke. The Czech CZ company has now also done so. Presently there is no major riflemaker in the that the old stalwart any longer.
