Never heard of that round, and can't find it in any of my handloading manuals.Is it some sort of wildcat handload? Do you mean the 6.5 x 55 Swedish Mauser, commonly called the 6.5 Swede? That is a great "medium" loading perfectly adequate for deer and even larger game,. In fact, the Scandinavians kill most of their moose with that cartridge. As good as it is, it pales in a match up with the 270 WSM. As an example, the Swede can be handloaded to shoot a 130 grainer at 2550 fps, while the 270 WSM will push the same weight bullet out of the barrel at 3260.
