Daga Boy, If you enjoy your 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser as much as I do please take the time to read a treatise written about it bay a man named Nathan Foster. He is a long range hunter that lives in New Zealand. After doing so I'm willing to bet that you will at least try what he suggests. I did, and changed my reloads accordingly. Here is the link to his website https://www.ballisticstudies.com/ Once there go to his Knowledgbase for that caliber and rifle. I get 2775 FPS and very good accuracy out of mine.
