Hi DrMike!

I’m hoping you can run some QL load data for me?
I recently acquired an M38 Swedish Mauser, with a 24 inch barrel.
I was wondering if you could use 55k psi max, since that is what the European’s use to load their 6.5x55.
I have on hand Hornady 129 gr SST’s, and 146 gr HPBT match bullets.
Thank you very much in advance!

You’re quite correct DrMike!
I stand corrected.

Thank you so very much for your QL data, I really appreciate it.

Man, that is one of my rifles I need to get out more. Right now I’m using 26 with 140 ABs for 2900. It really is one of the good ones.

I whole heartedly agree!
You’re getting amazing velocity with the 140!
What barrel length is yours?

I haven’t had a Swedish Mauser for well over 20 years now!
Can’t wait to get it in my hands!

Ah yes! That explains it quite well.

That’s what I like about the modern sporting rifle in 6.5x55. You can always up the pressure a tad, and get more velocity.

From what I saw above, the old warhorse isn’t too far behind with RL26, 2850 fps ballpark. I’m tickled about that velocity potential.
Back in the old days, getting above 2700 fps was a chore, but not now. Gotta love the new powders and velocity potential.

I hope to get performance like that in my Sako 6.5x55 with Re-26 and the 140 gr AB's.

Recently picked up some more 130 gr AB's; think I will use those in the 6.5 CM.

I don’t think you’ll have too much of a problem Gil. That load is pretty steady and has shot well out to 500 for me, through different days.

26 really wakes up the old Swede.

I love that the 6.5 bullet is finally getting it’s accolades.
Love the high BC, and SD of the bullets now.
Looks like the 6.5 can be stretched to 400-500 yds on deer now.
