Swedish Mauser

The 6.5x55mm Swedish Mauser was adopted in 1894 and subsequently chambered in the Swedish Models 94, 96 and 38 rifles and carbines. In the Scandinavian countries, the 6.5x55mm has a reputation for both superb accuracy and effectiveness as a game cartridge.

The 6.5x55mm, while never very popular in the United States, is currently experiencing a resurgence. With the recent influx of surplus rifles and ammunition, availability of reloading components is improving.

The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for the 6.5x55mm Swedish Mauser is 46,000 C.U.P. Norma factory ammunition produced 51,000 P.S.I. in our test barrel. These loads were developed in P.S.I. and do not exceed the pressures of factory ammunition.
