RWS centerfire rifle cartridge with Twin-core-bullet

7x64

The twin-core projectile consists of two lead cores with different hardness and a Tombak jacket. The harder tail core has an additional tough Tombak jacket separating it from the softer tip core. The core weight ratio is 50:50. A tail groove at the rear end of the projectile reliably bonds the tail core with the external jacket. A second groove in the front section forms the sharp rim (impact location hair) and is also the specific breaking point for the front jacket of the projectile. This is an important point for the tearing away of the otherwise obstructive projectile flares. This design ensures a straight shot channel for the important exit hole.

Construction Twin core-bullet

  7. Long bullet cylinder for highest precision
