RWS centerfire rifle cartridge with H-Mantel-bullet

Bullet RWS HMK
7x64

Special about this bullet is its famous H-groove, a predetermined breaking point in the shape of a constriction in the middle of the jacket. It assists the separation of the two projectile cores and is, along with other factors, responsible for the bullet´s dual effective system: the front part bursts very quickly after the impact in the game, produces strong fragments and transfers much energy. The cylindrical tail part separates at the H-groove, penetrates the body even if bones of strong animal are hit, and provides the desired exit hole.

Construction H-Mantel-bullet

 

  1. Geometrically optimized tail for highest precision
  2. Hard tail core for extreme penetration
  3. Softer tip core for controlled fragmentation and high effectiveness
  4. Copper hollow tip for faster response in the game's body
  5. H-shaped constriction for reliable part fragmentation
  6. Modified cannelure for an optimal seat of the bullet
  7. Progressively increasing jacket wall thickness for a mass-stable residual body and a sure bullet exit

Mode of action

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