6.5x55 Swede = Performance

The Swede's run just fine in the parameters (pressures) they were designed for.
And probably the most accurate of milsurps in general, cept maybe the Persians.
If one wants a 6.5 Hot Rod, go with a Grendel, Creedmore or 6.5 Mag and let the Swede do what it always does, "Perform" at lower pressures.
I like them old mauser rounds (7x57, 7.65x53, 8x57, etc...) that get it done without a lot of muzzle blast or recoil. They take game just fine when you respect their limitations and use accordingly.
