Don't discount the Ruger African In 6.5x55. It shoots lights out, has perfect balance and way more class than the Tikka. They only made 250 so it should hold it's value. Can still be found on Gunbroker for around 1,100 bucks.

Just watch one go this last wknd on a Gunbroker regular RA-6.5x55 bi-weekly auction for $855.

Got a very good deal on mine not too long ago.

May be a buyer's market 'till they're gone.

Don't have either, but have 6.5 creedmoor and had 7mag and the 6.5 out performs the 7. On paper the 7 is better but real results go to the 6.5. There is just something unexplainable about the punch of a 6.5 bullet

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
