New 6.5x55

Just got her back last week.
6.5x55 on R700 LA
22" Bartlein 5R 1 in 8.5 twist
Bell and Carlson Stock
Burris XTR rings
EGW 20 MOA Base
Vortex Diamondback 4-12x40 (PST is my next upgrade.)

Still in load development, but so far she promises to be a shooter.

Re: New 6.5x55

Great looking rig and that is an awesome caliber---she will be a tackdriver.
Try the 140 sst............

Re: New 6.5x55

My wife got me the B&C last year for XMAS.. I want to say it was in the $250 neighborhood delivered?

---ETA: The B&C is well worth the money. I will put one on my sons build as well. ---

Here are some groups so far. I have some more that I need to post as well that took the charges up to 50 gr of 4831. Still no pressure signs, but there is no more room and I am .015 off the lands so I can't go out much farther.

Re: New 6.5x55

My favorite caliber!!!

VERY nice build. Those long bullets in that case, make for a fine shooter from short to going long. Congrats!!!!

Great shooting and loads. The swede is such a sleeper. It's been around 100 years for a reason.
