Anybody have any experience with this round? I got a model 70 in the 6.5x55 on layaway and lookin at my reloading manuals it looks like a great deer rifle.

I don't have any experience reloading but have been doing a lot of research on .264 caliber cartridges for a "mountain" rifle purchase. Here's what I've found so far: The 6.5x55 is a great deer round and is considered in europe to be a great "all-around" caliber. Its one of the most popular Scandanavian Moose cailbers (which are about the size of north american elk). In fact, Finland did a study surveying 11,000 moose hunters and found that there was no signifigant in hunter sucess from any cartridge from 6.5x55 to .338 winchester mag! (Please, no responses on minimum Scandanavian Moose calibers)
The American Factory rounds are severly underloaded because there are a lot of old 6.5x55 guns out there that can't withstand high pressures. Cabela's offer a 120 grain nosler ballistic tip (preferred deer round) and a 156 grain Norma Oryx (a scandanavian moose round) in norma ammo and just started offering Wolf Gold ammo in 140 grain. Talk about a diverse round.
I have had a real hard time finding anyone with experience in 6.5 mm caliber guns. See my .260 remington post - no replies.
One place I have found some people with experience is the forums on chuckhawks.com
There is a small fee for joining the forum portion of the site.
This is not an advertisement but has been the only online source of info I have found for .260 caliber reloaders in any volume.
Email me if you want more info on resources that I have found online.....don't want to advertise them here and wear out my welcome. Cabela's has been too good of a store/forum to me,
Cabelas.....offer some 6.5x55 brass for sale! I want to buy from cabelas, but have to look elsewhere......

Here is some info from the free side of chuckhawks.com:
The 6.5x55 is one of the great worldwide hunting cartridges. It offers excellent killing power, adequately flat trajectory, and moderate recoil. A best seller in Scandinavia, it is also popular all across Europe, Africa, Australia, and the New World.
Federal, Remington, Speer, and Winchester each offer the 6.5x55 with a 140 grain spitzer bullet at a muzzle velocity (MV) of 2,550 fps and a muzzle energy (ME) 2,020 ft. lbs. Hornady has two 6.5x55 offerings in their Light Magnum line, a 129 grain Spire Point bullet at a MV of 2770 fps with ME of 2197 ft. lbs., and a 140 grain Spire Point bullet at a MV of 2740 fps and ME of 2333 ft. lbs.
European loads for the 6.5x55 tend to be hotter than the standard U.S. loads. Sellier & Bellot of the Czech Republic load their 140 grain soft point spitzer bullet for the 6.5x55 SE at a MV of 2645 fps. Sako of Finland offers a wider range of loads, including a 100 grain FMJ spitzer bullet at 2,625 fps, a 139 grain match bullet at 2,790 fps, and a 156 grain round nose bullet at 2,625 fps. Norma of Sweden loads their 139 grain Vulkan bullet to a MV of 2854 fps and ME of 2515 ft. lbs. They offer several loads with 156 grain bullets, the fastest of these being the Vulkan bullet at a MV of 2644 fps and ME of 2422 ft. lbs. These loads are typical of the performance European hunters expect from the 6.5x55.
The reloader with a modern bolt action rifle can do very well with the 6.5x55. Here are some specifications of interest to reloaders: bullet diameter .264", maximum COL 3.15", maximum case length 2.165", SAAMI MAP 46,000 cup/51,000 psi.
The SAAMI MAP for the 6.5x55 is kept low due to the many ancient surplus Krag-Jorgensen and M-94 Swedish Mausers sold in the U.S. If you are reloading for one of these old timers, avoid the maximum loads quoted below. Modern rifles chambered for the 6.5x55 can safely be loaded to 50,000 cup, and this is reflected in the maximum loads you will find in many reloading manuals.
The typical bullet weights for the 6.5x55 SE are 87-100 grain, 120 grain, 125 grain, 129-130 grain, 140 grain, 150-156 grain, and 160 grain. The 87-100 grain spitzer bullets are varmint bullets, the flat shooting 120 grain spitzer bullets are generally intended for the smaller deer and antelope species, the 125-130 grain spitzer bullets are excellent for all-around hunting, the 140 grain spitzer bullets combine the weight, SD, and BC for larger game at fairly long range, and the 150+ grain bullets are usually designed for large animals at medium range.
The 6.5x55 is a forgiving, well balanced cartridge and practically any medium-slow burning rifle powder will prove suitable. Among the powders tested that provided top accuracy for Nosler technicians were VARGET (with 100 grain bullets), AA-3100 (with 120 grain bullets), IMR 4350 (with 125 grain bullets), and RL-22 (with 140 grain bullets).
The Speer Reloading Manual No. 13 shows that their 120 grain spitzer bullet (BC .433) can be driven to a MV of 2650 fps with 45.0 grains of IMR 4831 powder, and 2886 fps with 49.0 grains of the same powder.
The Speer 140 grain spitzer (BC .496) can be driven to a MV of 2449 fps by 44.0 grains of RL22 powder, and 2671 fps by 48.0 grains of RL22.
Speer recommends the 120 grain bullet for antelope and the smaller deer, and the 140 grain bullet for large deer and black bear. The good old boys at Speer tested these loads in a Ruger M77 rifle with a 22" barrel, and used Federal cases and CCI 200 primers.
The Hornady Handbook of Cartridge Reloading, Sixth Edition shows that their sleek 129 grain Spire Point and SST bullets can be driven to a MV of 2700 fps by all eight powders listed. Examples would be 42.4 grains of IMR 4350, 45.5 grains of H450, 42.1 grains of Win. 760, or 45.4 grains of RL-22. A typical starter load would be represented by 34.4 grains of RL-22 for a MV of 2300 fps. These loads used Hornady brass and Winchester WLR primers, and were chronographed in a Model 1896 Mauser with an 29" barrel.
The fifth edition of the Nosler Reloading Guide lists loads for their excellent 125 grain Partition bullet in front of 41.5 grains of IMR 4350 powder at a MV of 2592 fps, and 45.5 grains of 4350 at a MV of 2910 fps. Norma cases and Remington 9 1/2 primers were fired in a 23" barrel to develop these loads.
The Sierra Edition V data manual shows that 36.5 grains of RL-22 behind their 160 grain bullet is good for a MV of 2200 fps, while 40.5 grains of RL-22 can drive the same bullet to a MV of 2400 fps. Federal cases and Federal 210 primers along with a Model 96 Swedish Mauser rifle with a 29" barrel was used to develop these loads.
At present I am loading the 140 grain Sierra GameKing SBT bullet at a MV of approximately 2650 fps in front of 44.7 grains of RE-22 powder for use in both my Model 1896 Swedish Mauser and my Winchester Model 70 Featherweight rifles. This is an accurate, general purpose load. See the Sierra Edition V data manual for additional details.
The 6.5x55 is one of my very favorite hunting cartridges, and very easy to reload. Almost any hunter/reloader who tries it is bound to be pleased.
Note: A full length article about the 6.5x55 SE can be found on the Rifle Cartridge Page.
I reload for the 6.5X55. You will find that how a given bullet performs in your rifle depends on the rate of twist in the rifling. The heavier the bullet, the longer it will be, therefore, the faster the rate of twist required. I don't know the rate of twist for your Winchester.
There are exceptions, such as the 160 gr. round nose. These seem to shoot well for everybody that trys them. The 160 gr. is the classic loading for the 6.5X54 Mannlicher Schoenauer, shoots well out of an 18" barrel, and supposedly before WWI there were guys using them for elephant. (I sure wouldn't recommend that.)
My favorite is the 6.5-.284 Winchester. This is a wildcat, standardized by Norma, that has been doing well at Camp Perry. I have a 1 in 8 twist Krieger barrel, and the accuracy is everything I wanted. This rifle will group 10 shots into 2" at 200 yards every time it goes out. I know people won't find that amazing because they are used to 3 and 5 shot groups. Try 10 in a row at 200 yards sometime.
You may think I'm digressing here. Your 6.5X55 is ballistically right in the thick of all the standard 6.5 cartridges that exist. I believe your model 70 is built on the long action, and that's good. Now you can load and have room for powder behind whatever bullet you choose.
Personally, I would start off with a 140 gr bullet and IMR 4350 powder. I have had very good performance with Hornady bullets, both the 140 Spire and the 160 Round Nose. From my experience, I would start with Hornady, and not the boat tail either. Just the plain old flat base.
Don't let anyone tell you the 6.5X55 is only a deer cartridge. There is so much history on the 6.5X54 taking African game, and so many Finns use the 6.5X55 for moose, the limits of the cartridge have not been clearly defined.
My guess for this is the cartridge is inherently accurate, and the modest recoil allows the shooter to fearlessly place his shots. It doesn't beat you up.
My prediction is other rifles in the rack will languish because you will love this 6.5X55.

Any opinion on 6.5x55 vs. .260 remington? I'm debating these two for a "mountain" rifle barrel for my TC Encore. Seen much .260 remington at Camp Perry? I grew up in Port Clinton, I might have to head down there...never been to the rifle matches.
The 6.5x284 wildcat is based on the .284 winchester case, right? How does it compare to the .264-06, 6.5x55, .260 remington, 6.5 remmington mag?
How do the 6.5s compare to the 7mm-08 and .308, especially recoil, in your opinion? Which would you get for a 6 3/4 lb gun with a 23" barrel, scope, and rings included in that weight?
Its a single shot so length of action is not a big factor.
Just starting to really get into shooting, thanks in advance for any info.
The .260 Rem. has been around for quite a while in the guise of the 6.5-08. It has distinguished itself as being a very competitive cartridge for "across the course", that is, 200, 300, and 600 yards. I don't load for this cartridge, and bypassed it in favor of the 6.5-.284. Having said that, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the .260 Rem. , the 6.5-.284 is a little more established as a 1000 yard cartridge, which is what I wanted.
As far as balistics, with the questions you are raising, I think you would be well served with a reloading manual. I don't want anyone to think I'm in the pay of Hornady, but I've found the Hornady Handbook to be a very reliable source for answers to questions like you are asking. You have to be a little careful with the data in this book because Hornady uses real firearms to work up the loads, not universal receivers and test barrels.
I would love to discuss pro's and con's of the calibers you mention, but they are really so close to one another in order to make discussion interesting, we would have to have beer and pretzels.
Just an interesting note, Hornady used a TC Encore to provide data for the 6.5-.284. With that platform they were unable to provide a noticable difference in ballistics with the .260 Rem.
I think the 6.5 caliber will continue to grow in popularity. The high ballistic co-efficient, and good sectional density of the bullets provide excellent results at the range and in hunting applications. The heavier 6.5 bullets give excellent penetration, a long wound channel that lets out a lot of blood.
01-22-2006, 07:11 AM
Thanks, Mark. That question on 6.5mm wildcats was kind of ridiculous on my part. Definitely a beer and pretzels question.
Just one more practical question....the 6.5x55 tends to have a faster barrel twist rate.....for example the winchester 6.5x55 has a twist of 1 in 8" compared to the standard 1 in 9" for a .260. Does this have any pratical consequence for lighter bullets (120 grain) loaded into a 6.5x55? I have read that a slower rate of twist might make the lighter bullets shoot slower/less accurate. Have you had any sucess with 120 grain loads in your 6.5x55?
I'm leaning towards a .260 over 6.5x55 as my 6.5 caliber "mountain" rifle because it seems the 6.5x55 is more of a 140-160 grain gun and the .260 is more of a 120-140 grain cartridge because of the barrel twist rates that the guns are usually chambered for....just wanted to confirm that this makes sense.
There are no ridiculous questions, and I really like beer and pretzels.
Your line of thinking is not flawed. When you shoot a longer (heavier) bullet of a given caliber, you usually need a faster twist rate to stabilize the bullet. There is a point of diminishing return here. The faster you spin the bullet, the more noticeable flaws in bullet construction become. The kicker here is the bullet jacket. If there are minute wall thickness inconsistancies in the bullet jacket, one side of the bullet is actually heavier than the other. As the bullet spins, it starts to yaw, or another way of looking at it is the centrifugal forces start to pull the bullet off course. That's why the bench rest guys shoot light .22 and .243 bullets with slow rates of twist. They are shooting at 100 or 200 yards.
The 1 in 9 twist is marginal for the 142 gr Sierra Matchking, but is good for the 120 gr. stuff. (Sorry, I don't have experience with the 120 gr.) Now, don't let this throw you. If you are a hunter, the 1 in 9 twist will probably be the best all around choice. It will stabilize the 140 gr. flat base, and shoot the 160 gr. round nose very well. It will also shoot the 120 gr. stuff well, without the chance of overstabilizing the bullet. Where you would need the 1 in 8 twist would be for the long VLD style bullets that need this much stabilizing. That's why the long range target shooters and 1000 yard bench rest guys go for the faster twist. It's a special application.
Also, don't let anyone tell you the slower twist will slow the bullet down. It is just a matter of proper application.
An example of this twist rate application is the M-16 used in Viet Nam. When the war started out in 1965 or so, (actually it was going on before that, but I think thats about the date the M-16 came in) the M-16 started out with 1 in 14, or 1 in 12 twist, depending on which report you read. There were all kinds of reports about the bullet "tumbling", and they were not far off. The bullet wasn't stabilized. When the army found the heavier bullet, 63 gr., penetrated body armor better at long range, the twist rate became 1 in 7 as it is found today.
Hope this helps.

Thanks. Very helpful.

The Swede is the best rifle caliber Ive ever shot. I have seen many animals go down like the hammer of Thor hit them than with any other caliber Ive used. Theres just something about the long slender bullet that really does a job on deer. I used to own a Winchester Featherweight, and stupidly sold it, but it was a tack driver with anything I fed it. The first season I had it, i didnt have time to work up a load yet. I used Sellier/Bellot ammo and shot lots of deer with it. My buddies couldnt believe how the deer were just piling up like a lightning bolt hit them. Then I worked up a load with IMR4895 and 120gr. Ballistic Tips. Awesome combo. Then I got to where I wasnt having the time to reload like I needed. I found a great load for my Winchester at Georgia Arms. It is a 120gr BT at @2850fps. Tack driver in my Winchester. Then I sold the gun for some stupid reason. Hunted several sesaons with different calibers, including my 7.82 Patriot(Lazzeroni). Even it wont drop deer like the Swede. I just couldnt live without one. So I picked up a 24" barrel for my Encore at a gun show. Love it. My Georgia Arms load however isnt as accurate in this gun as it was in my Winchester. I imagine its because of the twist in the barrel. I currently trying to find me another load with some balls that is more accurate. Its plenty accurate for hunting, but I want it to drive tacks. All of the factory loads that are slow movers shoot awesome in my Encore, I just want some more velocity out of my rounds. I also have an Encore pistol barrel in this caliber. Im leaving the Lazzeroni at home this antelope season and taking the Swede. I have a Burris ballistaplex scope on it, plus it wont abuse my shoulder. Before I had my Winchester I had a 96 Mauser that had been sporterized by Kimber. I sold it to my cousin when I got my Winchester. He moved to Alabama and used it there for 3 seasons until it was destroyed in a house fire. Knowone in Alabama had heard of this round. After they saw the effect on game, they were all interested. Every deer he shot, dropped in its tracks. He was always having to go help them find theres after they had run off after being shot by 270/3006 and bigger. They wanted to know why they never had to help him track his deer. He would just smile and say "Because the Swede drops em where they stand." If you like your game to fall like the carpet got jerked out from under them, get a Swede, you wont be sorry.

I concur on the performance of the 6.5x55. It's a dandy. I have a Swedish Mauser in original condition that shoots with any modern rifle you care to stack against it. My dad put a lyman aperture on another M96 and it shoots like nobodies' business.
He had a Remington 700 Classic in 6.5x55 and was underwhelmed, simply because it didn't shoot as well as the old Swedish rifles, which are SUPERB.
We load 140gr. Hornady SP (plain ol' interlocks) on top of 4350, 4064, or Hodgdon powder. All perform well. My dad's done 3-shot groups where they all touch at 100 yds. with some of those loads with metal sights. So have I.
And the statement of the recoil is right on. The volume of the report and muzzle blast are also negligible. They are fantastic choices for those who are recoil shy because you aren't giving up anything to reduce the buck and snort when they shoot. When I hear my dad shoot his when we're hunting, it sounds like the shot comes from someone two farms over, not someone 175 yards away.
turner, you'll love that M70 in the Swede chambering, And if you EVER decide to sell it, you come to me first, you hear???
I'd love an M70 in 6.5x55 for my girls when they get older.

Did you get the info you were looking for? I've got several of the military Swedes, some I've sporterized, some left stock. I;ve got a lot of reloading data I've accumulated over the years if you're interested. From personal exxperience, I can vouch it's an awesome round for deer and antelope. We use the bigger calibers for elk and moose, but I suppose the 6.5 would work OK for them too.
07-04-2007, 09:14 PM
The only advice I can give you on the 6.5 Swede is BUY IT and enjoy one of the finest calibers you will ever own. My wife and I own four swedes three of which still have the military barrels. All of these shoot the same load great. It s the 140gr Sierra BT with 44 grs of IMR 4350. We have killed animals ranging from foxes to Kudu and Gemsbok. Numerous black bear and three elk have fallen to this load and too many whitetail to remember. The longest shot I have ever taken with this caliber is 380 yds at a Gemsbok and it went down like a ton of bricks. The bullet entered just above the elbow joint and exited approx 5 ribs back on the off side.
We just had one of the rifles rebarreled by www.rwhart.com. We had a Douglas barrel cut to 21" and installed for my 7 yr old son and he will be taking it on his first safari in 3 wks. When we return I will post some of his photos with his trophies and his new rifle. This particular rifle was mine and I had been shooting it since I was 12. thats 28 yrs of hard use during our 5 1/2 month long deer season here in SC. The rifle was assembled in 1901 so that is 106 yrs of use and it just last year started shooting groups larger than an inch
I could go on and on about this caliber as I have never put it to a test it wasnt up to.
I've just started hand-loading for my Dad's Sako 75 in 6.5x55SM and all I can say is WOW. It is by far the best shooting round that I have loaded for next to the .308 Win. I also have been loading the 140gr Sierra BTSP in it and have been very happy. If you do get the rifle and start hand-loading for it make sure you try powders like RL19, RL22, and N560. I've found loads with all three powders that will shoot five shot groups under 1/2 an inch at a 100 yards with the bullet listed above and Lapua brass. And the velocities are outstanding compared to factory loads. I know for sure that my next hunting rifle will be chambered for the 6.5x55SM after seeing what this cartridge is capable of in a modern rifle.

Back when M-1896 and M-38 Swede Mausers were everywhere for less than $150, I passed on buying another thinking they would always be around.....wrong...
I sure wish I could run across another in primo shape in either configuration.... talk about a dandy of a rifle....
07-07-2007, 02:38 PM
I guess it doesn't help to know that I bought my M1896 for $70, then......
I'm contemplating a Swiss K31 that I saw at the local Cabela's. They want $140 for it, and while I have no doubt that it's a reloader's round (7.5x55), I'm tempted.....
11-19-2007, 05:24 PM
I've just purchased a CZ 550 American in 6.5x55 and love it! I took my first deer with it at 120yds. One shot, no problems.
I recently purchased some ammo from Sportsman Guide with the intention of using it for practice. However, the bullets (FMJ) have a bimetallic jacket rather than copper and I've afraid to use the stuff. Will it cause excessive wear on my barrel? Will regular copper solvent clean the barrel?
11-19-2007, 05:35 PM
You should be fine with it, but you can reload the Swede for what the surplus stuff goes for these days, and the surplus stuff is usually non-reloadable (i.e. berdan primed).
Get a good copper solvent if you're worried and clean it thoroughly and you should be ok.

I have four 6.5's. Three in 6.5x55, one 6.5 06. Load Data, for the 6.5 x 55, 50 grains H1000, 160 grain bullet, 2472 fps, very accurate. Will go through deer whichever way you shoot them. My favorite load 120 grain bullet, 48 to 49.5 grains of H4350, this is a hot load, 50 grains will will give you pressure probs(in my guns, model 96's)very accurate, 2979 fps and maybe a little more., 100 grain bullet, 46 grains of 4895 at 3225 fps, and 85 grain bullet, 49 grains 4895 at 3500 fps. The 140 grain load which is a stomper is 50 to 51 grains of Reloader 19 at 2800 to 2880 fps. These loads with the exception of the last one are worked from data in a 1992 February Shooting times article. My 6.5 06 has hotter loads. I hunt whitetails, I don't need to hop up my loads much more. I think the 6.5 x55 is probably the best whitetail round ever. Almost zero recoil, accurate, and will shoot a deer through in any direction withthe 140's and 160 and even the 120's with proper bullet selection. My son shot a 225 lb buck last year, entered the neck straight on passed through the neck , through the chest and exited the groin. Head fell off the the body when skinning. How far do you think that deer went? For the magnum crowd, we'll go head to head on whitetails with a 6.5 anytime.

I have a Winchester Model 70 XTR standard weight sporter in 6.5x55 SM. It has a medium weight 22" long barrel. I mounted a Leupold M8 4x scope in Leupold mounts and rings. I bought this rifle in 1985 from McBride's gun shop in Austin, Texas, along with 2 boxes of Norma 139 grain factory loads. During initial sight-in, these factory loads shot 3 shot clover leafs, all shots touching. That deer season, 3 deer, Texas Hill Country white tails fell to this rifle and loads. All one shot kills. All dropped where they were standing. One at approx 85 yards, one at 115 yards and one at 210 yards. This is a really fun rifle to shoot, modest recoil, low noise level, enough velocity and energy, plenty accurate. I will vouch for the fact that the Norma loads are relatively hot. Case bases had shiney marks on them when extracted.
This rifle has a rather long throat because it was chambered to use all 6.5x55 loadings including the long 160 grain bullets. I started loading using 3 different bullets: Hornady 140 grain SP (flat base), Sierra 140 grain spbt and Speer 140 grain SP (flat base). The Speer bullet did not perform well as it is sized .263" and the Winchester barrel has a groove diameter of .264". I found that 44 to 45 grains of IMR-4350 with either bullet worked out great with velocities a shade over 2700 ft/sec. The Hornady bullet was actually the most accurate in my rifle. That surprized me as I was sure that the Sierra bullet would be the most accurate one. Since then I have taken many white tail, mule deer, antelope, 2 black bears and one elk with that load. All dead right there except for the elk and one bear. The elk went about 30 yards and the bear went about 50 yards with his heart blown in half.
Norma brass tends to be a little soft and heavier than Winchester brass. I have actually loaded 45.5 grains of IMR-4350 behind the 140 grain Hornady bullet without pressure signs. At 46 grains, sticky extraction and shiney marks start to show one the base of the case. Here again, the 45 grain is about the ballance point.
This cartridge is now about 115 years old and is still going strong because it does everything well.
I think that the heavy for caliber bullets are the 6.5's secret. High BC and sectional density equate to flat shooting at the Swede's modest velocity and deep penetration.

There seems to be some weird SD/BC advantage which arives at this caliber and fails to re-occur until
.338 which .... It Defies my understanding if not recognition.
The 6.5x55 fails to eclipse the .260 remy as loaded SAMI numbers (with deferrence to older actions I'd imagine.) But with carefull handloading, in newer actions it should be easy to achieve ...
Although the round is great, I'd sooner go with the .260 remy as the brass is standand and can be made with everything from .22-250 through 9.3x62 (gona be more work with some than others eh?)
One thing which I either missed, or no one pointed out, is that this little darling (.260) mimics .300WM balstics out to 600 ... even a thou!
To me it seems like a magic combo ... One which has been inexplicably overlooked by the American shooting fraternity, most likely due to the availability and good performance of the .30-06
If we keep in mind that an -06 is considered overkill until it is considered too light, (and then guys decide that pushing the same bullet faster could cure it's deficiency) the 6.5 is everything you could pray for until you need .338 (06 or rem mag)
I grew up with a 9.3x62 all the while lusting after the "ultra flat shooting" .30-06, in a belt hating household.
To do over again .... (and I will, with the collection of equipment for my boys) I'd start any or all new big game hunters on a 6.5!
I'd say a good 2 gun battery for northern America could be done with a .260 rem and .338-06 (I won't be ritiring the 'musket')
If I'm missing the "trolley" I hope the older and wised here will straighten me out.
PS note I, to date, do not posses either a 6.5 or .338-06,
I've just shot them and I am thouroghly impressed.
