RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 5,6 x 50 Magnum
Three years after the introduction of the 5.6 x 50 R Magnum, the rimless version 5.6 x 50 Magnum for repeating rifles was put on the market.
In Germany, the highly accurate 5.6 x 50 Magnum can be very well used on roe deer up to a distance of more than 200 m. The very good instantaneous effectiveness speaks for this cartridge with the 4.1 g soft-point bullets with pointed tip.
In Austria, it is a popular cartridge for chamois, as the 4.1 g bullets are perfectly suitable for this purpose.

RWS centerfire rifle cartridge with Soft point-bullet
A well-proven projectile type still favoured by many today. High to very high energy output in game. Somewhat stronger fragmentation, therefore exit holes are not always present. Very good stopping effect. Frequently used in battues because of the above reasons and because of a certain insensitivity to minor obstacles. With round or pointed projectile tip.
