Most modern metallic cartridges operate at a bore pressure of more than 50,000 copper units of pressure. That power alone could throw wood or metal fragments hundreds of times further than the few inches these weapons are from the user's face and body when being fired.
Because there are lots of old--and possibly not too strong--guns still floating around, the 6.5x55's pressures are held to a modest level: 46,000 copper units of pressure. That restricts the downrange performance, although reloaders with modern guns can push the envelope a bit.
Hodgdon lists a compressed load of Varget that delivers 2,271 fps at 36,400 copper units of pressure (CUP).
The specs are 52,000 copper units of pressure as opposed to 50,000.
