8,5x55 BLASER

SUCCESS REDEFINED – MAXIMUM POWER FOR SHORT BARRELS

Rifles with silencers are gaining more and more importance. In order to keep the firearm as compact as possible with a silencer, short barrels are the perfect choice. Especially for this reason, Blaser has developed the caliber 8,5x55. Even with barrel lengths of less than 50 cm, it reaches ideal ballistic values that are normally only achievable with use of longer barrels for high performance calibers.

With a bullet diameter of 8.5 mm and bullet weights ranging from 9.0g (Sax KJG) to 14.9g (Norma Oryx), combined with high bullet velocity, it offers optimum impact and a flat bullet trajectory. These features make the 8,5x55 Blaser a caliber with an incredibly wide field of use; ranging from local hunting territories to hunts for moose or large antelopes.
