the 6.5x55 Caliber is a good choice for medium size game but also depends on the range you'll be shooting in.
For me personally, I consider the 6.5x55 a little on the light side, I would use it to hunt with if my targets
were always going to be within a 200 yard range but I wouldn't want to risk shots any further then that
after 200 yards the bullet begins to drop rapidly.
If you zero in at 200 yards the Hornady 140gr. SP InterLock drops 9.9 inches at 300 yards & 57.4 inches at 500 yards.

Good Luck & welcome to the club.
