This cartridge was introduced by RWS in 1964, for use on roe deer, chamois and fox up to a distance of about 250 meters. The point-blank range of 206 meters allows this accurate RWS cartridge to be used at very long distance, particularly as the wind drift is also less than for other cartridges in 5.6mm caliber that have a low bullet velocity. In this instance, the heavy 4.8 gram KS bullet provides the required precision. The KS bullet ensures a very good effect without heavy damage to the venison. The ingenious coordination between the Tombak jacket and core material provides flexible adaptation to the target resistance. Whether small or large game, the projectile mushrooms in a controlled manner and transfers energy uniformly into the game whilst still retaining an effectively enlarged residual body for exit. The external shape of the projectile provides ideal prerequisites for high precision and low air resistance.
