6.5 Swedish Ammo
6.5x55mm Swedish ammo is a former military cartridge that has found favor with hunters and target shooters because of its excellent accuracy and long-range potential.
6.5mm Swedish loads typically fire a 140 grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of about 2,700 feet per second. Notable firearms chambered in this cartridge include the AG m/42 "Ljungman" as well as the Krag-Jorgensen rifle and a number of Mauser variants.
Full metal jacket (FMJ) and soft point ammunition in 6.5mm Swedish is available from European manufacturers like Prvi Partizan and Sellier & Bellot. Domestic options include Federal's Fusion line and Nosler's Trophy Grade line, both of which offer a 6.5mm Swedish hunting load suitable for deer and other game. You'll find both American-made and foreign produced rounds for sale here at Widener's at very competitive prices.

Of the five different cartridges that Prvi Partizan makes for the 6.5 x 55 Swedish, this is the smallest. As such, it has the best downrange accuracy while still delivering excellent velocity and muzzle energy. At 200 meters, this round will only drop 7.3 centimeters, making it very reliable for medium-range hunting.
The cartridge comes with a hollow point boat tail bullet. The hollow point allows for uniform expansion with deep penetration, while the boat tail gives it greater accuracy and consistency during it’s trajectory. This round will be highly effective for harvesting medium to large game, including deer, black bear, elk, and more.
Prvi Partizan makes about 400 different cartridges for hunting and target shooting. They are also a trusted source of ammunition for many government agencies. They are a Serbian company that has been creating top-quality ammunition since 1928, using a meticulous quality control system to ensure reliable, dependable rounds.
I purchased two boxes of this ammo. Both boxes of ammo had pretty significant burrs on the case necks. I'll have to file or sand it down before I can shoot.
