However, admission to the Nuremberg expo grounds is restricted to professional visitors and accredited dealers. There is no need to worry though: Visit this page to catch up with the latest news from the ROTTWEIL shotgun shell segment for sports shooting.
The new ROTTWEIL GOLD HV series
No matter whether it’s trap, skeet, pursuit shooting or hunting stages etc.: Competitive shooting should be fun and bring success. However, without the right ammunition, that just isn’t possible. ROTTWEIL offers a broad range of shotgun shells that are specifically engineered for these shooting disciplines and that therefore set the scene for consistently outstanding performance. The new ROTTWEIL GOLD HV series, which was designed from the outset together with accomplished German Shooting Federation (DSB) squad members, is certainly no exception.
For years now, ROTTWEIL HV cartridges have epitomized fast shotgun shells for sports shooting with an excellent and consistent quality. Now ROTTWEIL is raising the bar yet again with the new GOLD HV series. This is because many of the components have been optimized in a close cooperation with successful DSB squad members: Shot with enhanced breaking force, powder with less recoil, intermediate material with optimized shot patterns at a variety of shooting distances and casing that reveals the technology’s incredible sophistication. Even so, you don’t have to be a professional shooter in an Olympic discipline to enjoy the GOLD HV series. Keen sports shooters and passionate stage shooters can also benefit from the improved characteristics of this shotgun shell series.
ROTTWEIL GOLD HV: FIVE NEW SHOT CARTRIDGES IN CAL. 12/70
The ROTTWEIL SKEET GOLD 24 HV shell delivers outstanding shot patterns at typical skeet distances thanks to a special shot cup that separates quickly from the pellets. The newly developed shot cup for the TRAP and SPORT GOLD HV shells enables consistently good shot patterns both with the first and the second shots. What’s more, the cup’s shock-absorbent base construction noticeably reduces the recoil. The SKEET STREU GOLD 24 HV shell produces an ideal shot pattern for skeet shooting in hunting scenarios thanks to its shot cup with integrated spreader device. And the best thing is that all of the new shotgun shells from the GOLD HV series are already available from dealers.
The new ROTTWEIL GOLD HV series at a glance:
- Transparent casing draws the eye to the sophisticated technology
- Gold-graphitized shot with enhanced breaking force (5% antimony)
- Optimized intermediate material for ideal shot patterns
- Soft recoil powder
- five brand-new shotgun shells in caliber 12/70 for sports shooting: TRAP GOLD 24 HV, SKEET GOLD 24 HV, SPORT GOLD 24 HV, SPORT GOLD 28 HV and SKEET STREU GOLD 24 HV.
The DSB squad shooters Andreas Löw and Paul Pigorsch provided close practical assistance in developing the new ROTTWEIL GOLD HV series: “Successful skeet shooting demands a good blend of mental resilience, experience, technique and equipment. As long-standing squad members, we were delighted to contribute our know-how to developing the new Sport Gold HV series by Rottweil. Our extensive testing has allowed this shell series to be created from scratch.
Important questions during this process were:
- How do the pellets spread at various shot distances?
- How does the speed affect judgement of the lead and the recoil?
- Can the breaking force be increased without producing unwanted effects?
Using innovative components and carefully selected loads, ROTTWEIL has, in its new GOLD HV series, ticked all the boxes for what a professional shooter should expect of a high-performance sports shell. Ambitious sports shooters can also use these new cartridges to improve their accuracy and have more fun and success in their hobby.”
