RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 6,5x55

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 6,5x55

The 6.5x55 is definitely a fast cartridge with extended trajectory. Its internal precision is excellent and as a hunting cartridge it is optimally suitable for all medium-sized, but also for lighter red deer and wild boar. 

With the 8.2 g RWS cone-point bullet or the 9.1 g RWS twin-core bullet, it becomes an all-round cartridge for hunting. Today, it is internationally very popular, in particular as a hunting and sport-shooting cartridge for distances of up to 300 m. 

Its history: In the year 1894, the 6.5x55 became the ordinance cartridge in Sweden and Norway.

RWS centerfire rifle cartridge with Evolution Green-bullet (lead-free, part fragmentation)

Bullet RWS EVO Evolution Green
6,5x55

Both cores of the new lead-free EVOLUTION GREEN bullet are made of food-safe metal. The new lead-free EVOLUTION GREEN bullet is especially effective given its outstanding responsiveness. This is achieved through a specially pre-fragmented front core made of tin and the use of RWS' new Speed Tip bullet points which enable an impressive shock effect. This will guarantee humane and successful hunting.

Even at long ranges, the EVOLUTION GREEN offers impressive killing effect. With conventional designs, there is a tangible decrease in deformation capability at long distances. Not so with EVO GREEN. Here, this effect is noticeably reduced thanks to the intelligent design of the projectile.

An optimised bullet form (high BC) and the speed tip ensure a flat trajectory with high levels of speed and energy. 

The stable tail body ensures a guaranteed exit wound for reliable blood flow. The sharp edge also delivers the desired clean cut.
