I have sold all my fishing kit and bought a 2nd hand Tikka T3 in 6.5x55. I cant fish no ore due to back problems.
I should have really put the money back in the house but wife said i have to have something to play with that ain't broke, cheeky cow.
so after talking to a good friend it was thought that the 6.5x55 can be loaded with less punch on the shoulder and back.
I want a bullet that will work on the odd roe and muntie. we are talking 2-3 a year here. but i also what it to work on fox and possibly pest control on rabbits that my .222 is failing on, IE:300+ yards.
Thought and talks are saying 120Gn Speer Hot-core, varget 34.5-41.1Gn, cci primers. I do not want to run this in a hot load that will cause me more damage and pain. I can not handle recoil like you lot. I have to shoot semi auto shotgun with light loads as i cant deal with an o/u's kick.
I use a load on my .222 of A-max 52Gn and 21.5Gn of Benchmark powder. this is a start load.
What would you guys suggest. i dont want a hot load though please.
thanks for any help you can offer guys.
