    I should have mentioned I was hesitant on this rifle because its the Sporter model, with 20.5” barrel, shorter than the normal 22” or 24” standard but, still longer than the original 1894 Swede (~18”). I have a lot of confidence in the x55 in any rifle.

    My Swede was hte military carbine wiht the 18.5 barrel. It was the one that shot through both shoulders of the 6 point buck. 156 grain Norma. My brother in law's Swede had a 24" barrel cut doen form the standard rifle which was about 29" I think. The carbine was supposedly for the ski patrols. The Biathlon winter skiing competition is base on that. Brother in law shot lots of deer with his Swede.

    I shoot LH so sold the carbine. I now use the 6.5 CM but am indifferent between it and the Swede as far as use goes. 260 is a good one also. If you handload the Swede there are two sets of data. One for the old Mausers and one set for the newer rifles, which is a bit warmer.
