The Armory's selection of 6.5x57mm Mauser ammo for sale.
Designed and introduced by Mauser in the late 1900s, the 6.5x57mm Mauser is a great round for sport shooting. Pete Pearson made the caliber famous by using the round for game hunting in Africa, including the impressive African Elephant.
The 6.5x57mm round was designed to be essentially a necked down version of the 7x57mm Mauser round. Although the 6.5x57mm cartridge never saw much military service, it did help to inspire the design of many 6.5mm military cartridges, including the 6.5x58mm Vergueiro.
