Prvi Partizan - Soft Point - 156 Grain 6.5X54 Mannlicher Sch Ammo - 20 Rounds
The 6.5x54 Mannlicher Shonauer cartridge became the standard Greek Army cartridge in 1903 and remained so until the German Occupation in 1941. The caliber continued to resurface after the war as an easy rechambering of other nation’s rifles that were captured and re issued as emergency arms during the Greek Civil War and by various partisan groups. In sporting circles, it was a favored Safari cartridge popular for use on elephants and lions: Hemingway referred to it as a .256 Mannlicher and it was a close second to his favored .30-06 Springfield. Its exceptional long axis offers superior stability and wind resistance as well as exceptional penetration into game.
