Sellier & Bellot has been producing cartridge ammunition since 1870. Today they produce ammunition using high quality components in their semi-jacketed bullet consisting of a metallic jacket and a lead core. The lead core is bare in front. When hitting the target, it gets deformed and produces a mushroom-like shape, which enhances the lethal effect. It is used for most types of rifle cartridges and, depending on caliber weight, it is used by hunters, competition shooters, law enforcement agencies and militaries around the world. This ammunition is non-corrosive, in boxer primed, and has reloadable brass cases.

My 6.5x55 has a 1-9 twist and will not stabilize the longer 140 grain bullets. I bought this ammo with the shorter 131 gr. bullet hoping it would stabilize. I was not disappointed. Nice round holes at 100 yards instead of the key holes. It gives me the accuracy I have come to expect from the great 6.5x55. The only reason I give it a 4 is because the advertised velocity of this 131 gr. ammo. is less than the heavier 139 gr. ammo. It should be the other way around. Yes I would recommend this ammo. especially for rifles with the slower twist.
