Adopted in 1891 by the Kingdoms of Sweden and Norway, the 6.5x55 is a first generation smokeless powder military round that has served and survived longer than most of its companion cartridges of the day. This is largely because of the narrow and long axis of the bullet which manages truly impressive stability over long range as well as offering impressive penetration capabilities. While the Swedish Mauser rifles are much sought after by military arms collectors, there are quite a few modern rifle makers offering their models in the caliber because of its fine capabilities. As a long range, flat shooting round, it remains very popular among competitive shooters as well as hunters. The 140 grain soft point bullet has a muzzle velocity of 2671 feet per second with 2218 foot pounds of energy. This is primarily a hunting round good for up to deer hunting.

Sellier & Bellot has almost two hundred years of ammunition manufacturing experience which has occurred during every major technological development of the modern, metallic cartridge. Loaded with boxer primed, reloadable cases that extend the value to handloaders of this versatile cartridge, S&B remains a trusted choice for hunters and sportsmen.
