I was cruising the net looking for 6.5x55 info and ran into this site. I thought I would join as a couple of the threads caught my eye. I am from Mississippi but have lived in Tennessee, USA, since 1991. I hunt mostly whitetail deer, ducks and turkeys. My go to big game rifle for about 8 years has been a Model 70 Featherweight in the 6.5x55 caliber. I shoot a Beretta AL390 on the ducks and a Mossberg 835 at the turkeys both in 12ga. Nice to get new perspectives on things and have enjoyed the site so far.
