Sellier & Bellot - Full Metal Jacket - 140 Grain 6.5x55mm Swedish Ammo - 20 Rounds
The 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser/Krag round is one of the surviving first generation small caliber smokeless calibers developed in the late 1800’s. That alone shows its merits for its continued use. The 6.5 was adopted by the United Kingdoms of Norway and Sweden for use in their rifles, Krag and Mauser respectively, in 1891: the two nations chose their own rifles while sharing a common caliber. The small diameter and long axis of the bullet makes it a very stable long range shooter prized by precision shooters as well as hunters. The 140 grain bullet by Sellier & Bellot has an approximate muzzle velocity of 2651 feet per second with 2185 foot pounds of energy. This round is ideal for range training and target shooting as well as for competitive matches.
