NEED 6.5X55 SWISS SPECS.
I MEANT 6.5 SWEDE SORRY
I NEED SOME ONE TO PUT A ACTUAL MIC ON THE BASE ( NOT RIM) OF VARIOUS 6.5X55 BRASS AN REPORT BACK WHAT THEY FIND.

LOOKING FOR AMERICAN SPECS AS WELL AS EUROPEAN MILITARY ALSO.
IF MY IDEA PANS OUT ILL HAVE A ROUND THAT WILL DO 3100 FPS WITH A 115 VLD TYPE BULLET ;)
swiss or swedish
if its swedish i can give those to you
if swiss go to Sturmgewehre Forum ask these guys they are swiss they would know
OPPS i SCREWED UP ( SLEEPY)
I need specs on 6.5x55 swedish mauser .
thanks for catching that btw :)
well it turns out there is a swiss 6.5x55mm but i don't have the spec's and it could be the same round
I don't have a base or empty case
max case length 2.160"
trim to length 2.150"
overall length with projectile 3.062"
uses a lyman shell holder 27
unless the myth buster say's I am wrong
I mainly need the base dia. some sources say its .480 others say its much smaller in real life. Im goping to be cutting it down to about 43mm .
I'll check it out for you in the morning 1biggun, I think I've got 3, maybe 4 different types/brands of brass in 65x55. I'll check them on some of the new unfired Privi and milt stuff I have,,,the others might be reloads in the other couple brands I have so that may only reflect the sizer die dim., but I'll get the dimensions for you from what brands I do have that haven't been reloaded. Both if you want, and I have some once fired ones too if you want those dimensions too. That should give you some good averages to work with.
Does this help?
Base diameter 12.20 mm (0.480 in)
Found it here
6.5×55mm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Here are the specs from ammoguide.com followed by wikipedia:
Just use the round as-is... my dad's loving his 6.5x55 AK conversion we built! :D
Here's the "real life" specs. I got
Hot Shot (PPU) unfired 12.12, 2mm
reloaded 12.12, 3 mm
Milt ball (Sweed) unfired 12.12 ,4 mm
fired 12.12 ,4mm tough bases?? No change.
Norma reloaded cases unfired 12.12 mm even
sorry none fired ???
Win unfired 12.12, 2mm
fired not loaded 12. 12, 3mm
reloaded 12.12, 3mm
They all seem to be pretty consistant over all with the milt ball sweedish being 100% consistant throughout. I measured 5 of each type and averaged out, but less than .002mm-.003mm seemed to be the max variance between all of them.
Is that what ya needed 1biggun?
