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.

If you need help feeding your European-styled Sauer, Tikka, or Barrett Fieldcraft rifle during hunting season, then Widener's has you covered with these exquisite rounds from Sellier & Bellot. Each of these 6.5x55mm Swedish cartridges is constructed using a reloadable brass casing that is properly formed, treated, and inspected at the factory. A non-corrosive Boxer primer plugs the base of the casing, lending the round reliable ignition that won't leave any metal-eating salts on the surface of your breech. The case is filled with clean-burning powder which propels a 131-grain soft point projectile.
The soft point bullet has a lead nose which peeks out from underneath a strong copper jacket while aligning to the rest of the bullet's shape for sleek drag-resistance which contributes to greater accuracy: an all-important factor when you're resting your crosshairs on an elusive pronghorn. During entry into a game target, the bullet will begin expanding and taking on a mushroom-like form, causing it to tumble, swerve, and push its energy into vital organs after punching through the thick layers of hide and breastbone. This ensures positive drops with minimal suffering done unto the animal.
