I have this 6.5mm Mauser and I am looking for info on the bullet. Is it a stuffer or modified? I can not find any image matching or information on this. Thank you in advance.
Dominion made 6,5x54 Mannlicher Schoenauer hunting ammo for the M1903 Steyr MS sporter ( great deer rifle)
Definitly NOT any 6,5 “Mauser”
( 6,5x54 K, 6,5x55 Swede, 6,5x57 sporting, 6,5 x58 Portuguese Vergueiro)
Measure head diameter of Dominion case…it should be .448" or so: all the “Mauser” cases willbe
.468" to .470" or bigger:-Swede. 475".
Byw, trying tofire a 6,5MS in a Mauser chamber will result in catastrophic destruction of rifle.
Thank you Doc AV, you are correct. The head diameter measures 0.445” and the case length is 2.093, not 2.158” (plus/minus) like my other Mausers
I am a relative new collector and am fast learning that identifying cartridges by holding next to a known specimen is not the way to go with ambiguous or unknown head stamps. My library of books and knowledge is slowly growing.
