Thread: 6.5x55

    6.5x55

    I am after a 6.5x55 SE. Budget (just for the rifle) £5-800.

    I would consider x-bolt, tikka, sako or similar.

    Anyone got anything gathering dust?

    They might just be slack at getting their ads taken down as it's on Gunstar as well:

    There's no reason to ignore someone that wants to spend £800 though, even if it's a "sorry that's sold, but we have this..." response

    I take it by your signature with 3 Sako 75s that you are a fan! I hadn't noticed that one at Ivythorn- very tempting...

    Some folks are Tikka fans, some Blaser and some Remington...

    I'm mindful that's it's £55 above your budget, but personally, I'd try and find the additional £55 to get into the Syn/St rifle. I bought mine from Macleod's of Tain for £895 5 years ago, and it's never missed a beat (other 6.5x55s are available)
    Cheers

    I have a Mauser M96 Straight Pull, if you are after something different. People, most who have never owned one, put them down, but theu are a very accurate and quick repeating rifle. I had a collection of straight pulls and kept only the Ross Sporter and this M96. It is also the last Mauser - the new ones not being made by Mauser of Oberndorf anymore. Mine is a lovely condition gun with nice wood and Recknagel mounts. Pm if interested.
