Not sure if this might belong in the ballistics but here you go.
Q: Why is the 6.5x55 considered a slow ish round? Theres a fair bit of powder in there and the heads arent that heavy
Is there scope to wind the velocity up a bit with reloads?
Its a curiosity thing more than anything else.
I bought one a while ago and though it was a pleasure to shoot, it turned out a lemon so went back to the dealer.
Now thinking about getting rid of my .243 Sauer for a 6.5x55 again as a pure deer rifle as i have a .22-250 for foxes etc
This isnt a 'is 6.5x55 better than .243/anything else' thread please
