RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 7x65 R

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 7x65 R

The 7x65 R is an excellent cartridge for distances up to the 200 m range and beyond. Thus the whole range of use from roe deer to red deer can be optimally covered. 

This cartridge was put on the market in 1920 following the rapid success of the 7x64. This cartridge is the rimmed equivalent to the 7x64 and is predestined for break-open rifles. It is perfectly suitable for both combination hunting rifles and break-open rifles. In particular with the 8.0 g cone-point bullet and the associated high velocity, the 7x65 R is an excellent cartridge for chamois in an easy-to-handle break-open rifle.

RWS centerfire rifle cartridge with Cone point-bullet

7x65 R

The ingenious coordination between the Tombak jacket and core material provides flexible adaptation to the target resistance. Whether small or large game, the projectile mushrooms in a controlled manner and transfers energy uniformly into the game whilst still retaining an effectively enlarged residual body for exit. The external shape of the projectile provides ideal prerequisites for high precision and low air resistance.

Cone point-bullet

Construction Cone point-bullet

 

  1. Tail constriction for a mass stable residual body and a sure bullet exit
  2. Ballistically optimized cone shape for an extended trajectory
  3. Tombac jacket 
  4. Lead core for balanced deformation behaviour with different types of game
  5. Long bullet cylinder for highest precision

Mode of action

Shot on a block of gelatine with a length of 35 cm. Shot distance: 100 Meters. Caliber: .30-06

  1. Energy transfer on lightweight game (at 10 cm): 1.557 J
  2. Energy transfer on heavyweight game (at 15 cm): 2.461 J
  3. Total energy transfer: 3.302 J
  4. Maximum energy: 206 at 10 cm
