You could say the same thing regarding the 7x57 Mauser. Like the 6.5x55, American made ammo is kept to the 50KPSI range, or 45K C.U.P. if you prefer the old method. Properly handloaded it's a horse of a different color. It's no problem to do 2700 FPS and higher if I want from my Winchester M70 FWT. Same with the Ruger #1. They love those lose loads. However, if the rifle is an 1893 or 1895 Mauser one should use caution. The same would be for the 1896 Swedes even the later M38's. They're still just 1896 actions.
