    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]
