    The green tip ammunition is "not for automatic weapons". It is of low quality in manufacture and mechanical quality. The green tip is the early marking of the projectile. Later the colour was switched for dark blue. The cartridge is probably made 1939, it is only from that year I found boxes with this colour marking.

    This is a unknown cartridge to me. It is a early experimental round were the case is made 1917 by Marieberg ammunition factory (That does not mean that this round is manufactured that year) It has a blackened projectile. If that is the materials original colour or if it is coloured in that way is unknown to me. It is either a trial smoke trace round, or simply a projectile with a new kind of material in the jacket.

    The production for this ammunition were running during 1943-44 and it was expensive for the time, 1,20 SEK per piece, equivalent to 24 SEK in today's value. The high price was due to the exclusive material in the core, tungsten carbide, and the difficulties to form this material.

    The ammunition was issued for snipers, and at 1956 each sniper was equipped with 40 pieces of PPRJ and 40 pieces of sniper grade ammunition prj m/41.
    The PPRJ ammunition is not of sniper accuracy, it is really an AP ammunition to gain a better capability against hard targets. The accuracy is given as within 18cm2 at 100 meters as an average, tested in 200 series, shot with 10 rounds in each series in the delivery tests. Also, the trajectory is different between the PPRJ and the standard 6,5 m/41 projectile, so the shooter needs to readjust the point of aim when used. The ammunition is intended against lightly armored targets as personnel carriers or shields at artillery.

    The only indication of use outside the sniper category is the AmReg 1943 catalog for the marine. Here it shown up for both rifles and all of the marines machine guns. The publication after, 1946, the AP is removed from the marines AmReg again. This short period of display on the catalog makes me wonder it it was actually introduced in the marine, or if this was only a intention.

    Even if the PPRJ cartridge generates a higher Pmax of 3500 atm compared to an standard m/41 ammunition that has a Pmax of 3300 atm, the PPRJ can be used in all of the 6,5 mm weapons in use in the Swedish army.

    The penetration capacity of the 6,5 PPRJ is actually better than that of the AP of the more powerful round, the 8x63. The core of the 6,5mm PPRJ projectile has a better form for penetrating hard targets.

    The V25 of the 6,5 PPRJ in a m/96 rifle is 950 m/s to compare to the V0 of 8x63 PPRJ that is 810 m/s.

    As some examples can be mentioned a penetration for 100 meters and 90 degrees impact angle results in:
    140 mm of concrete
    16-17 mm of HB 500 steel armor.
    28 mm of HB 130 steel plate.

    The same test for 300 meters and 90 degrees impact angle results in:
    120 mm of concrete
    8 mm of HB 500 steel armor.
    22-25 mm of HB 130 steel plate.

    In 1956 there were still 3.800.000 PCS of PPRJ on stock.

    This is short range training ammunition m/12 with a wooden core. If you look closely at the bottom of the wooden core you will see NP stamped there. Could be Norma Projektilfabrik. The case is also stamped "E" for "Ersättning", "substitute", so this case is made in steel. This kind of ammunition is for short range training of cadets and for indoor practice shooting. The projectile shown is rifled in the sides. It is because the projectiles were reused after fired. There is also a later model of the projectile with a jacket only without the wooden core.

    This blue dyed, wooden projectile 6,5x55 cartridge is the rifle grenade for the Krevadkarbin m/16 were altered for the 6,5mm caliber (in origin, the rifle were in the 8x58RD caliber).
    A Krevadkarbin m/16 is an altered Remington m/67-89 rifle with a "cup" on the end of the short barrel to hold the krevadpatron m/16. There is a rod on a chain attached to the rifle that is used to push out the empty case as the rifle is missing an ejector.
    The krevadpatron m/16 is a simulation grenade that after being fired will detonate with a bang and a smoke cloud simulating an artillery attack.
    The full designation of the cartridge is 6,5 mm. lös patron m/16 för krevadpatronkarbin. [2]

    There were 22.661 cartridges in stock 31/1 1942 [1] but I have still not found a box of this cartridge, only single pcs.

    From 1942 the cartridge to be used is specified as the standard m/14 blank cartridge. The later cartridge will give a slightly longer throwing distance. [7]

    This inert round is without the typical green projectile that is standard for the modern inert round. The 2 groves around the case are where it should be. The cartridge is "blind", without primer and propellant. The cartridge is made for safe practicing with the weapon.
    This special round marked "VPT 41" is made in Finland for the Swedish government in 1941.
    VPT is short for "Valtion Patruunathedas" in Lapua, Finland.
    One big thanks to John Giles, California for this picture!

    This seems to be an experimental/first production of its own kind. It has a shorter projectile than the live round or the standard issue inert coming later on. It is not only a by accident squeeze d round, as more identical rounds is to be found. I have no explanation of why the projectile is shortened.

    This is an inert round that has been upgraded to have the projectile painted green to follow the standard introduced in the 40th. It is originally designated “6,5mm Blindpatron m/19 för kulspruta”, but is used in all 6,5mm weapons by this time.

    This is the first spitzer projectile to be used on trial in the Swedish defence. It is designated spetskula fm/06, spitser bullet trial model m/06.
    The projectile is spitz tipped with a straight sided flat bottom. It resembles in the design to the German s-geschoss

    I cannot put a designation on this short range ammunition, as it is per definition not a standard round. It is most probably a kammarpatron m/12 trial construction, but I have no information at all about it.

    I really have no idea of what this might be, but as several is found I think it is legitimate. The case is produced by Marieberg in 1926, but it can also of been a reused one.

    This cartridge looks like it is manufactured a week ago. The truth is that the case is stamped in 1897. This is a production by K & C, Keller & Co, Hirtenberg, Austria.

    This is the second generation of inert round in 6,5x55, the m/99 (1899). It is a all brass construction and it is identified with the two rills on the projectile. It should probably have a empty primer in place, something that is missing on this example. It is manufactured by the Marieberg ammunitions fabrik in 1902.

    This is the first spitzer projectile to be used on trial in the Swedish defense. It is designated spetskula fm/06, "spitser bullet trial model m/06".
    The projectile is spitz tipped with a straight sided flat bottom. It resembles in the design to the German s-geschoss. It were used as a reference for a long time, and were used in the trials of the developments of the 8x63 ammunition.

    This is a torpedo formed projectile from 1913, trial model m/13 It was a experimental type never been formalized.
    I do not have much of data for this ammunition yet, but the box from 27 September 1916 states it to be a projectile "typ B" of torpedo type. The powder used is the "Gkr III", rifle powder type 3.
