Live, Combat
Ball No colour
Tracer No colour White
Incendiary No colour Orange
Armor-piercing No colour Black

Proof load No colour The case-head is black

On some Ammunition the colour of the sealing enamel have a certain meaning.
e.g. on 9 mm ammunition, dark blue enamel tells that is the original m/39 cartridge,
while red enamel tells that is the newer and stronger m/39 B cartridge.
Blank and gallery ammunition in 9 mm uses light blue primer sealant.

Note that other markings have occurred


e.g. Tracers used to have a red tip
Som brass bought during WW2 were of sub standard. Machine guns might ripp case
heads off during extraction. Boxes were marked "Endast för fredsbruk" (For peace-
time use only) or "Ej för automatvapen" (Not for use in automatic weapons). Often the
bullet is painted blue.

--------------------------------------------------------
Swedish 6.5x55
The types of 6.5 mm ammunition used since 1972

sk ptr m/94 prj m/41 prick

skarp patron m/94 projektil m/41 prickskytte


live cartridge m/94, bullet m/41, sniping
This is the ordinary live ammunition, it was developed for the m/41 snipers
rifle, but it eventually replaced the old m/94 cartridge. The m/41 bullet is a
pointed boat-tailed bullet "torped". Silver-coloured bullets got a copper-nickel
plated mild-steel jacket. Gold-coloured bullets got a tombac plated mild-steel
jacket.

sk ptr m/94 slprj m/41


skarp patron m/94 spårljusprojektil m/41
live cartridge m/94, tracerbullet m/41
This is an ordinary tracer (red), its ballistics it quite similar to the ordinary live
cartridge out to 800 metres. It is lighted from 100 to 800 metres. The tip of the
bullet is painted white.

kptr m/12

kammarpatron m/12
gallery cartridge m/12
This cartridge is used to train riflesquads to fire simultaneously, and to train
NCOs in directing the fire of their squad. You use miniature targets at close
range (~30m), this gives a quick and easy feedback. The bullet only protrude a
couple of millimetres from the case, and have no core.
lös ptr m/14

lös patron m/14


blank cartridge m/14
This is a blank cartridge with a, red, hollow wooden bullet. On automatic
weapons you use a blank firing device to make the gun cycle. The blank firing
device will shred the bullet on exit. In the beginning there were no such device
for rifles. Regulations said that without using the blank firing device, you were
not allowed to fire at soldiers at a closer distance than 20 metres. This
distance was later increased to 100 metres, but accidents still occurred. So a
blank firing device for rifles was introduced in the 1950s.
A warning might be in place; the powder of this ammunition is extremely
progressive and will ruin any rifle - if used with ordinary bullets.

Live ammo is packed in brown cardboard boxes containing 20 cartridges.


Blank ammo is packed in red cardboard boxes containing 20 cartridges.
Ten cardboard boxes is packed in a green, sealed plastic bag with a handle (this is
called one loaf of ammo).
Four loafs are packed in a green masonite box with a handle, one loaf in every
masonite box, with live ammo, contains two boxes with tracers.

Cardboard and masonite boxes are marked with an eight digit number.
First three figures is a code for the manufacturer.
The two figures in the middle is the year of production.
The last three figures is the number of the lot. One lot is approximately one million
cartridges.
The code for the manufacturer and the year of production can also be found on the
case-head.

6,5 mm ammo could also be belted for use in machine guns. 250 rounds in each
canvas belt, four belts in one masonite box.

Older types of 6.5 mm ammunition

sk ptr m/94

skarp patron m/94


live cartridge m/94
This is the original cartridge developed for the m/94 carbine and the
Norwegian Krag-Jörgensen rifle. It got a blunt "ogival" bullet.

sk ptr m/94 slprj m/39

skarp patron m/94 spårljusprojektil m/39


live cartridge m/94, tracer m/39
This is the original tracer (red). It is lighted from 100 to 800 metres, and got a
wite tip. Really old ammo got a red tip.

sk ptr m/94 pprj m/41

skarp patron m/94 pansarprojektil m/41


live cartridge m/94, armor piercing bullet m/41
This cartridge got a faster bullet (965 m/s), with a steel and lead core, it's got a
black tip. Primarily issued to snipers.

sk ptr m/94 övnprj m/44

skarp patron m/94 övningsprojektil m/44


live cartridge m/94, bullet for practice m/44
This cartridge got a light blunt bullet that protrude eight millimetres from the
case. It's accurate at 100 metres and less and was used for initial training
becouse the safety distance was less than one kilometre.

lös ptr m/94


lös patron m/94
blank cartridge m/94
This is the original blank cartridge with a green, blunt, hollow wooden bullet.
Older ammunition is packed in grey paper boxes, each containing two clips with five
rounds each. 108 paper boxes is packed in a sealed thin box inside a wooden box
with two handles.

Some types of 6,5 mm ammunition for special purposes

blind ptr

laddblindpatron
inert round
The inert round got a nickel plated case with two grooves, and a green pointed
bullet. The old inert round is called m/19, it got a black case with sevaral
grooves, and a blunt bullet.

sk ptr m/94 slprj m/41 red lng


skarp patron m/94 spårljusprojektil m/41 reducerad laddning
live cartridge m/94, tracerbullet m/41, reduced load
This is a tracer (red) with a weaker load, half of the case head is painted black.
It is used for spotting rifles.

sk ptr m/94 högtrycksptr


skarp patron m/94 högtryckspatron
live cartridge m/94, proof load
This is a proof load - only Armourers are allowed to use this cartridge - the
case head is painted black. This load delivers a pressure of 4000 - 4500 atm,
compared with the 3200 atm delivered from the ordinary ball ammunition.

Sometimes the text "Amf" twelve o'clock, this means


"Ammunitionsfabrik" (ammunition-factory) and referes to the
code six o'clock.

According to some publications Amf means


"Armeförvaltningen". This is dead wrong - if you read some of
the Swedish Army's ammunition manuals they clearly states
that Amf means "Ammunitionsfabrik". Besides - the full name
of "Armeförvaltningen" was "Kungl Arméförvaltningens Tygavdelning" ('The Royal
Swedish Army Administration, Ordnance Division') and that's abbreviated "KAFT", not
"Amf".

Older cases often have a crown twelve o'clock, this normally means that the
ammunition have been manufactured by a state ammunition factory, i.e.
Amf Karlsborg or Amf Marieberg.

But it seems like the crown also appears on ammunition made in France and
Germany - by SFM and DWM.
Sometimes an "E" twelve o'clock, this means that the case is made of brass-plated
steel instead of brass.

E reads "Ersättning" which means substitution.

Sometimes the manufacturer twelve o'clock - mostly on imported ammunition made


by SFM and K&C.

The code for Amf Zakrisdal 'Z', and the code for Svenska tändsticks AB, Jönköping
'31', could be found on boxes but as far as I've been told they didn't manufacture any
brass in 6,5x55 - they probably just loaded some 6,5 mm ammunition.

The code for VPT in Finland was '29', but this code have only been observed on
boxes - all cases were marked 'VPT'.

Of course there are other markings as well!

-----------------------------------------------------
Experimental projectiles
To improve the balistic performance of the Mauser rifle, test were carried out in 1906
and in 1913.

The 1906 experimental bullet spetskula fm/06 was an ordinary pointed bullet quite
similar to the German S-Geschoss (the S-bullet) from 1904. A new progressive
powder G. kr. III was tested at the same time. The new powder and the lighter bullet
increased the muzzle velocity with almost 100 metres per second.

The 1913 experimental bullet torpedkula fm/13 was a slender, pointed boat-tailed
bullet, quite similar to the French Balle Desaleux.
It was assumed that the light weight of the 6,5 mm bullet fm/1913 would make it
suffer from insufficient penetration. Hence trials were also made with slightly heavier
bullets of the same shape, in calibre 7,2 mm and 7,5 mm.

The design of the Swedish 6,5 mm projektil m/41, adopted in 1941, was based on
the experiences from the fm/13 bullet.

Notes:
[1] The 40×365R m/48 case is also available with electric primer. The
electrically ignited ammunition was only used with subcalibre guns for the
105mm Kan strv 101.
[2] Same dimentions as the 57mm m/70.
[3] The 57mm m/70 is of the same dimentions as the 57mm m/50. However
the m/70 have electric ignition and the crimping is different.
[4] The 84×245R m/48 case is also available as a 0,39 kg aluminum case.
[5] The 105×112R M/10 case was only used for the Coast Artillerys howitzer
model 1910.
[6] The 105×155R m/49 case originally had a mouth diametre of 105mm. To
re-use old m/49 cases for guns fitted with the new m/40C barrels the mouth of
the case was opened out to Ø110.
[7] The base of the 105×339R m/50 case had the same diametre as the
105×155R m/49 case.
[8] The 120×611R m/24 case could also be found with a length of 608mm.
[9] The 152×1252R m/40 case could also be found with a length of 1205mm.
Dimensions
Calibre and length of the case, in milimetres.
Often the calibre is the same as the inside diameter of the case.
R = rimmed
SR = semi-rimmed
B = belted
Rim
Diameter of the case at the case head, in milimetres.
Weight
Weight of empty case in kilograms.
Misc.
RCL = recoilless (the case has no bottom)
Electric = electric ignition
When there were two or more types of ammunition of the same calibre, and
with similar dimensions, the Army preferred to call them X, Y or Z.

Dimensions and Weight from official documents, Rim diameters measured from
various collections.

If nothing else is noted the case is made from brass and fitted with an ordinary
percussion primer. However there were steel cases as well for some guns and
howitzers during WWII.

Oddly enough there are two different 105mm cartridge case model 1910 - one 98mm
long for the Army and one 112mm long for the Coast Artillery.
There are also two different 105mm cartridge case model 1950 - one for the Army
(105x339) and one for the Coast Artillery (105x778).
