    6.5x55 SE

    I am after a 6.5x55 SE rifle, but I have very limited funds having just bought a 17 HMR! Please let me know if you have anything you are considering selling!

    Many thanks,

    Do you have a budget?

    I need to get a feel for what is available and at what cost. There is a CZ 550 6.5x55 on GunTrader for 475, but I am happy to spend more for extras, especially a scope.

    Your options at around 500 are limited really to CZ and Tikka. There is a S/H M695 Tikka screw cut on guntrader for that sort of money.

    I know you didn't ask this, and if you must have a 6.5, that is fair enough, but a limited budget will go much further with a 270 than a 6.5x55.

    Check out and compare 270's with 6.5's on Guntrader and MacLeod's websites, there are dozens of 270's for reasonable money.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    +1 for the .270 as value for money! They are unpopular at the moment, being a bit barky and prone to giving you a shove, but not uneccessarily so. And if you can reload it makes them a bit less so, if you want it to. There are some real bargains to be had in .270!!!!

    I am a 6.5x55 user so i do know where you are coming from, but don't discount the .270.

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    Thanks for the feedback guys, I have now managed to source a rifle at a good price.

    Incidentally the only centrefire I have ever fired, and the one I have done all my stalking and foxing with, is a .270. It was certainly a bit loud, but I didn't feel the recoil was especially excessive. Looking forward to seeing how the 6.5x55 performs!

    You'll like it, a great calibre but circumstances dictated that I've just had to sell mine! I think I'm just down the road from you (Chippenham) and have some Federal Powershocks that you can have FOC if you want to give them a try.

    That'd be great Moonraker, I'll send a PM.
