I started searching and got lazy. This is worse than Elon Musk kids name.
What is this that I have acquired? Swedish Mauser ammo? What is a Swedish Mauser?

Swedish m/41 6.5x55 ammo designed for the Swedish m/41 and Ag m/42 Ljungman rifles. 140gr spitzer bullet @ approx. 2625fps resulting in 2148 ft. lbs. of energy. Berdan primed. If the box is already opened, or you want to open it, this link should help you identify the headstamp:

This is Swedish ammo commonly known as 6.5x55mm. It is perfectly suited for the M38/94/96 Mausers, the Ljungman AG-42b and many other commercial rifles chambered in the 6.5x55mm (Ruger m77, etc.).
It is berdan-primed, so don't attempt to reload it in the conventional manner (ie. as you would boxer-primed brass). Berdan primers aren't generally available for these cases.

This would function fine in older Swedish Mausers and in modern commercial guns, but this isn't optimized for those guns. Different twist rates. So, might be a waste to shoot a whole box of these through an older or commercial gun unless the gun "likes" the ammo.

My level of marksmanship doesn't make it matter that much, but I see your point.
I don't shoot a Ljungman, do you? Is there a problem brewing reloads that shoot on par with the m41 ammo in the AG-42b?
