    Does anyone have a favorite commercial or reload formula and bullet for the 6.5x55 Swede for deer, and one for Elk too.

    Secondly, barrel length, as I'm doing a build right now and between 26" or 28", what do you think about final barrel length? The guns gonna weigh close to 10 lbs with scope.
