    6.5X55 95gr Vmax

    Hi guys

    Just wondering if anybody has any experience with 6.5X55 calibre using 95gr Vmax's I know it's not the best calibre for Fox but at this time I don't want to buy another rifle just for some foxes when it will only cost me a box of Vmax's and time reloaded and re-zeroing,

    Kindest regards

    Hi Garry

    Not used the Vmax but used Hornaday 100gr interbond Sp in my .260.

    I was very good for fox ! I found it was a bit light for Fallow that i why i tried it on fox to use it up.

    So i would say you will be fine as i will be faster and open up more than what i used.
    I don't know what you are shooting now, Proberbly something like 140 Gr so 95 Gr will be 1.2 to 1.5 inches high.

    I have shot roe and fox with said bullets.
    No exits on the x2 roe.
    Lethal on fox.
    I had trouble getting to group at start as they have a massive jump into the rifling been a short for calibre bullet.
    might still have one loaded somewhere see if i can get you the COL.
    regards john

    Cheers John, that's crossed my mind about the COL, was going to go with Hornadys COL but it would be interesting to know what length you found best John,

    Kindest regards

    I found I was getting 2 tight groups but an inch apart.
    Played with the COL and presto it came together.
    Will have a look now.

    I use Sierra 100gn Varminters for fox. At 100yds it hits the same point of impact (1.5" high) as my 129gn SST's. They are deadly on fox, absolutely deadly. I found that the 100gn Varminter was stabilised better than anything lighter. I tried the V-max and one or two others below 100gn and could not get them to group. The 100gn groups well.

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

    Thank you John

    Hi Simon and thanks for your advice, i think i will go with what you say, the Sierra 100gn Varminters the reason i was going to use the Vmax's was the only book i have is the Hornady reloading book, looks like i'v got to bit the bullet and get the Sierra book, pardon the pun

    Kindest regards
