    reloads for 6.5x55 wanted

    I use 46 grains of N160 with a 120/140 grain Barnes TSX.

    WORK UP TO THIS LOAD!!! your rifle may not be the same as mine!

    I have a CZ 550 in 6.5 X 55 and use Hornady 129 grain Interlock with 45 grains of H4350, very accurate very effective, I also use H4350 for Hornady 140 grainers I can't remember how much off hand, but also very accurate. For the 140 grains I would start somewhere around the 41/42 grains of powder mark if I were you. With regard to the 129 grainers this load is safe in my rifle as always, work up a safe load in your own rifle.

    Hope this helps

    45.5gn of N160 behind a hornady SST 129gn wrapped in Lapua brass and garnished with a Federal LR Match Primer. Usual caveats apply.

    Sweet shooting, effective load:

    Lapua 6.5x55 brass
    120 Gn Nosler BT
    Federal GM210M primers
    RL-22 49Gns
    Gives .2" groups at 2836 fps in 22" LW barrel.

    You could go hotter, but ...... no need for normal deer stalking on Roe and Fallow - IMHO.

    I'll second JAYB's load for the 129 grain Hornadys. My son and I took two fine deer with that load this past fall.~Muir
