RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 6,5x68

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 6,5x68

The 6.5x68 is an extremely fast cartridge with a very extended trajectory, an excellent shooting precision and a special suitability for very long shots. The cartridge is predestined for hunting in the mountains for chamois, ibex, lighter wild sheep or Scottish red deer. 

The 6.5x68 was already presented as a high-performance cartridge in 1940. With the 6 g RWS soft-point bullet with pointed tip bullet velocities of 1150 m/sec can be well achieved. For the 6.5x68 the 8.2 g RWS cone-point bullet is especially suitable.

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

Bullet RWS EVO Evolution Green
6,5x68

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.
