    Carl Gustav M96 6,5x55 SE

    I just acquired this beauty. Anno 1901 with not a scratch, looks unfired, with all parts numbered.

    Great looking rifle. Question: Is your bolt handle blued?

    Let alone it's good looks, it shoots too. Here's a 10-shot group, shot over military issue sights at 100 meters (true, I went to a higher FS blade to bring it just above POA).

    Just run that through a program for a ball park figure and it listed N-160 - 44 grains with the 140 SMK COAL 3.110" 2586 fps at 43,547 lbs/inch2 from a 26.5" barrel.

    So based on that the program re adjusted to a 29" Brl and a COAL of 3.040 ~2,664fps 45,105lbs/inch2

    Close enough. With my 29" barrel, I get 2618 ft". My COAL is set at 3.04" (no research, just taken from the book).
