RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 7x65 R

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 7x65 R

The 7x65 R is an excellent cartridge for distances up to the 200 m range and beyond. Thus the whole range of use from roe deer to red deer can be optimally covered. 

This cartridge was put on the market in 1920 following the rapid success of the 7x64. This cartridge is the rimmed equivalent to the 7x64 and is predestined for break-open rifles. It is perfectly suitable for both combination hunting rifles and break-open rifles. In particular with the 8.0 g cone-point bullet and the associated high velocity, the 7x65 R is an excellent cartridge for chamois in an easy-to-handle break-open rifle.

RWS centerfire rifle cartridge with ID Classic-bullet

Bullet RWS ID Classic
7x65 R

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
