6.5mm for plains game hunting?
Having read a lot about the 6.5mm x 55 Swedish Mauser it is not very commonly used in Africa. Yet hunters in Scandinavia have used this caliber very effectively for decades on eveything up to the size of moose. The ballistics sound perfect for plains game. Bullet weight ranges from 110 gr up 150 or 160gr, sectional density (read penetration) is on par with a 30-06, its flat shooting and the beauty is that it has the recoil of a 25-06. Has anybody used this on African plains game?
