That is awesome! Do you reload for the 6.5X55 ?

Yes I use a little round I picked up in the UK from a friend who shoots on the international UK team against modern rifles at 900 meters.

What is the weight of the bullet in grains.

He uses the 139g Senecar and I use the 140g Sierra Match King HPBT we both use RL22. Prive makes a 140g HPBT and I have run a few tests nothing real exact but what I save in money I lost in accuracy two fold.

So what size groups are you getting from it? I had a mint from arsenal rebuild AG42. I had it for 3 or 4 years and finally sold it unfired. I couldn't bring myself to pop it's cherry as it was unfired. I always wonder how good it might of shot, but will never know.

I don't know, never shot it.

I have one that I got from the guy who bought it Surplus. It is very accurate like the bolt 6.5 X55. Only thing is the muzzle brake :( It is one loud sucker to shoot. I bought a spare barrel thinking I would get the brake cut off and mount the spare barrel. I have rarely shot mine although I did own another one at one time. Make sure you do not fire it without the mag in place. The rounds need to be stripped off the magazine. You will damage the extractor if you load the round into the chamber and slam the bolt to chamber the round. Great gun that uses direct gas impingement like the AR rifles. Nice guns. Swedish steel is the finest I have seen. The bayonets are really nice too. Regards.
