Accurate and versatile – the 6.5×55 SE cartridge loaded with the 7.0 g (108 gr) Scenar projectile

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. Practically all rifle manufacturers offer the 6.5×55 SE.
