    I love this cartridge. Better than .270 speeds, but with much better BC's and SD's. You'll find load data if you search back to the June 2002 issue of Precision Shooting or The Accurate Rifle for "6.5x55 Bob Jourdan (Ackley) Improved." He lists an accurate load of IMR7828 54 grs, 129 gr bullet, 2975 fps. H 414 seems to produce good speed and accuracy, too.
