7.5x55 Swiss Ammo

7.5x55mm Swiss ammo, also known as Schmidt-Rubin, is a large, powerful battle rifle cartridge used by the Swiss military for over a century. The large number Model 1889 rifles imported to the US makes this cartridge more commonly used among American gun owners than one might think. That's why we try to carry Swiss rounds in-stock here at Widener's.

7.5x55mm cartridges in the military GP11 specification (the type you'll most frequently find for sale here in the U.S.) fire a 174 grain full metal jacket bullet at 2,560 feet per second.

Surplus ammo of this type (typically made by RUAG) is often available in the United States but poses difficulties for many reloaders due to its use of Berdan primers. Handloaders wishing to avoid this problem have several options including factory ammo from Prvi Partizan and Hornady.

    EXCELLENT AMMO

    I PURCHASED THIS AMMO FROM WIDENERS AFTER I BOUGHT A K31. FIRST DAY AT THE RANG, I SHOT AT 50 AND 100 YDS AND WAS SURPRISED AT THE ACCURACY OF BOTH THE RIFLE AND THE AMMO. I DIDN'T THINK THAT MY 67 YEAR OLD EYES WERE CAPABLE OF THIS ACCURACY ANYMORE. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS AMMO.

    You will not find better surplus ammo than GP11. Heck, you probably won't find MANY ammo better than GP11

    GP11 is unlike any other surplus ammo you will find anywhere. This stuff really is match grade ammo. Handloaders will find it difficult to match the performance of this stuff.

    Beautiful

    The entire presentation is incredible, black box, wax seal, carrying straps. White interior waxed bags with near mirror finishes on the bullets. Powder burns clean, flawless reliability.

    Great Ammo

    Review by J-latt (Posted on 8/28/16)

    almost perfect

    Fantastic ammo. Only criticism, you can't reload it with conventional American equipment. (berdan primed). Quality is seriously excellent, though, if you don't mind throwing away the brass when you're done.

    Swiss GP-11

    Great ammo

    Review by Kowboy (Posted on 8/3/16)

    Great stuff

    Great stuff .Glad to see it back, worth while even though the case is a bit odd. To bad it is not easily reloaded. Accurate!!! in all my K-31.

    Review by REM1875 (Posted on 7/31/16)

    Excellent superior ammo!

    This is essentially match grade ammo, and very clean burning. Do the math, clean-burning match-grade ammo for the price, you can't beat it!

    Review by Jay (Posted on 7/28/16)

    Prvi Partizan makes two versions of the 7.5 x 55 Swiss: a full metal jacket round, and this one, which has a soft point, making it more effective for hunting purposes. The cartridge has top-quality velocity and power, and the soft point delivers uniform expansion with deep penetration.

    This round has some of the finest accuracy you can find, although it will start to dip significantly after 200 meters. It flies flat to 150 meters, but will drop as much as 46.8 centimeters by the time the projectile travels 300 meters.

    Made by Prvi Partizan, this is one of over 400 cartridges manufactured by the Serbian brand. They have been making cartridges since 1928, and have become a leader in handgun and rifle ammo. They make cartridges designed for both hunting and target shooting, as well as tools and supplies for case reloading. With a superior quality control process, they are even favored by many government agencies.
