6.5*55 - Full power loads in a modern rifle

I'm currently doing some research into having a 6.5 built, as my long range varmint rifle.

The 6.5 Swede case looks to be about the perfect size for the job, but every load I find for it, is limited to relatively low pressure to accomodate the older rifles that normally chamber it.

Has anyone done any work with this cartridge, using modern pressure levels, in something like a Rem 700?

    Best person to ask that is Steve Shelp. He used to be a moderator on the board and you can private email him. He competes in 1k BR with that cartridge and does very well.

    The swede is a great round by all accounts, and I have been toying with the idea of building a 6.5 for LR work. I found someone at www.savageshooters.com who shoots them a lot. Might try over there.
