Default The 6.5x55 is a sweetee...

I was out at the range yesterday with a friend that brought his custom sporterized 6.5x55. I had never shot that calibre before and it sure didn't recoil like the 30-06s I always shoot. He was shoot factory 6.5x55s with a 139gr bullet. The groups fired by the rifle were nice, I am guessing that the velocity was around 2500-2600fps.
