6.5×55 Swedish Mauser
Undoubtedly the best of a flurry of 6.5mm military cartridges engineered over a century ago, the 6.5×55 provided excellent ballistic performance coupled with moderate recoil. It capably made the transition to modern times, although American ammo companies governed by SAAMI load it gently out of caution for vintage rifles with potentially weak actions.

If you want the best out of the 6.5×55, you must either handload it or purchase European-loaded ammo by Norma, Lapua or the like. It has about 11 percent greater case capacity than the 6.5 Creedmoor—the current gold standard—so when loaded to similar pressures, it produces a step up in velocity. It goes without saying that these loads are suitable only for use in strong actions in good condition.

Because of its 3.15-inch overall cartridge length, the 6.5×55 must be paired with a long action. On the plus side, this makes it easy to seat long, highly aerodynamic bullets well out of the case so they don’t intrude on propellant capacity. Magazine capacity runs four or five, plus one in the chamber.

Paired with a tough bullet, the 6.5×55 is adequate for elk, but hunters must place shots carefully. As many proponents point out, the cartridge has been used successfully on tens of thousands of Scandinavian moose. This is true, but keep in mind that Scandinavian moose are much smaller than our North American species, and they are typically shot at close ranges, where the 6.5×55 has adequate energy.

Of course, the “Swede” is superb for deer-size game. For deer, pick a 120- to 143-grain bullet. For bigger, tougher game, opt for monometal versions or heavy Nosler Partitions, Swift A-Frames or the like.

My current favorite all-around 6.5×55 hunting load pushes a 129-grain Hornady InterBond at 3,030 fps. I took several plains game species in Mozambique with it, including a sable. Fired from a Ruger M77 Hawkeye African, it groups under an inch at 100 yards.
