Either you don't understand what has been said, or you really do not want a 6.5. A 6.5x47lap will fit in a really short action, will perform the same as the 6.5x55, almost the same as the 6.5-06 and use less powder to boot.
Maybe you should stay with the short range .22 that you can't hunt big game with.
