Many thanks to everyone for getting back to me.

Looks like a 243 in my future.

    I've shot hundreds of the nos 55's out of a savage striker pistol in 243-- 3500 fps from a 14" barrel with 4895. Moa and better groups too. It was good enough to head shoot prarie dogs at 100-150 yards with a pistol.

    I am on the east coast and I think it is going to be a good caliber for this area.

    Now if I can just get loading components.
