6.5 x 06

Introduced in the 1920’s this wildcat round increased in popularity after WW II due to the influx of 6.5mm rifles into the United States. Surplus 6.5mm rifles from many different countries made ammunition very difficult to obtain for the various rifles. At this time, .30-06 cases were abundant, and gunsmiths began to re-chamber these rifles to 6.5×06. Converting to this caliber offered more power and performance than the original chambering.

A-Square standardized this cartridge with SAAMI in 1997 and ballistic performance is very good for this caliber. It is more than capable of shooting distances of 1,000 yards and for hunting deer and elk. This wildcat round is capable of propelling a .264” dia. 140 grain bullet at 3,100 fps. with 2,988 ft.-lbs. of energy.
