RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 6,5x57

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 6,5x57

The 6.5x57 was developed as pure hunting cartridge, and is especially suitable for hunting areas with a lot of roe deer and occasional heavier game like moufflon or fallow deer. 

The bullet weight ranges from the 6.0 g RWS soft-point bullet with pointed tip to the 9.1 g RWS twin-core bullet. Therewith the 6.5x57 covers large distances as well as short hunting distances in the woods. 

The 8.2 g RWS cone-point bullet can be very universally used. The preservation of the game's meat, in particular with roe deer, is very good with this cartridge.

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

Bullet RWS EVO Evolution Green
6,5x57

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.
