The 7x64 is an all-round cartridge for Central Europe. It can be used in the mountains just as well as for short hunting distances in the woods. It is suitable for medium-sized to heavy cloven-hoofed game like wild sheep, chamois or ibex. 

The 7x64 is a balanced high-powered medium cartridge with an extended trajectory. Due to the wide range of bullets available from RWS, it can be adapted very well to any kind of hunting purpose.

RWS centerfire rifle cartridge with ID Classic-bullet

Bullet RWS ID Classic
7x64

The essential thought of the ID Classic inventor was to ideally combine "width and depth effects" in the target. This was achieved by bonding two different hard lead cores: The front soft part protrudes like a plug into the rear harder and heavier part. This lead "marriage" is enclosed by a jacket of mild steel which gradually thickens towards the rear. The torpedo tail, with a third larger base area, improves external ballistic behaviour with its higher flight stability.

Construction ID Classic-bullet

 

  1. Harder tail-core for convincing penetration 
  2. Sharp edge for cutting of hair at point of impact 
  3. Softer tip-core for controlled fragmentation and high effectiveness 
  4. Nickel-plated steel jacket for increased barrel life
  5. Tail constriction for a mass-stable residual body and a sure bullet exit
  6. Torpedo-shaped tail for high flight stability

Mode of action
