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.
