My 11 yr old son uses my CZ 6.5x55 SE to hunt. Most of our hunting is done in bushveld conditions were the average shots are between 70 - 150 m. We shoot 140 gr Nosler Accubonds at 2580 f/s. The bullets at this speed over the shorter distances is performing really well. This rifles is used up to kudu. We use Nosler 100 gr Ballistic Tips for target practice and pest control animals. These are shot at 3050 f/s.
