The 6.5×55mm Swedish (designated as the 6.5×55 Swedish by the SAAMI and 6,5 × 55 SE by the C.I.P.) is a first-generation smokeless powder rimless bottlenecked rifle cartridge. Other common names for this cartridge include 6.5×55mm and 6.5×55mm Swedish Mauser and less commonly 6.5×55mm Mauser and 6.5×55mm Krag.
It was developed in 1891 for use in the new service rifles then under consideration by the United Kingdoms of Sweden and Norway. The Swedish-Norwegian Rifle Commission started its work in 1891. After extensive ballistic tests where different calibers were tested (8 mm, 7.5 mm, 7 mm, 6.5 mm etc.), the optimal caliber was determined to be 6.5 mm (0.256 in). Following this decision, a joint Norwegian-Swedish commission was established in December 1893.
