I'm about to start doing some reloading for my Sako 85 in 6.5 x 55. I don't have any cases, powder, primers or bullets yet so I'm looking for suggestions on components before I spend any cash. I will of course check the safe loads for these in due course and will then work up the range till I find the sweet spot for my rifle.
I want to start with soft point / partition bullets (as opposed to the ballistic tipped ones) in the middle of the normal range, so I guess weights of between about 120 and 140 grains.
I recall that this topic was done fairly recently - Flytie and others shared some really useful stuff. However, I've looked and I can't find the thread.
I'd be very grateful to here about the combinations that work for you.
