POTD: A Swedish Mauser Carbine

    Andrew sent us this photo of his Swedish Mauser M1894 Carbine chambered in the classic 6.5×55mm. It features a custom full length sporting stock with a beautiful antler crown at the muzzle end.

    The 6.5×55mm is a cartridge that was well ahead of its time. It saw service for just over 100 years from 1984 to 1995 when the Swedish National Home Guard stopped using Swedish Mauser’s chambered in it. It’s design is very modern, even by 21st century standards, with a high ballistic co-efficient that makes it popular around the world with hunters around the world.
