Can someone check my sums for me. When I bought my rifle (6.5x55) the RFD had a load of Sako 156g ammo that he wanted to get rid of so gave them to me very cheap but warned me that it wasn't legal for deer in Scotland. I remember checking this at the time and thinking he was right. I've just come back to it and according to Sako's website the MV of this ammo is 800 m/s which I now calculate as being 2624ft/sec so it is legal.
Two possible things have happened. -
1. When I checked it I thought the minimum MV was 2650 not 2450 - this is quite possible given my numerical dyslexia.
2. Sako have changed the ammo.
Can someone please tell me I'm right in thinking it IS legal?
