The 6.5×55 SE cartridge factory-loaded with the Scenar Open Tip Match bullet
The 6.5×55 SE is one of the most popular all-around ammo in the world for both target shooters and hunters. Lapua’s 6.5×55 SE cartridge is especially popular in the Scandinavian countries, including long-range field shooting disciplines. This round delivers a flatter trajectory and excellent ballistics. Though traditionally most used at longer ranges, the 6.5×55 SE cartridge is today extremely popular in competitions from 100 to 800 meters / yards. This cartridge is loaded with our Open Tip Match projectile Scenar, with a bullet weight of 123 grains (8 grams) and an impressive muzzle velocity of 3015 fps or 920 m/s. We have two versions of this 6.5×55 SE cartridge with this GB489 bullet, for the version with the slightly lower muzzle velocity, see the other version here.
