    Wanted 6.5x55 syn

    I have a friend who is after a 6.5x55 with synthetic stock. he has the calibre on his ticket now. He'd like it factory screw cut for a mod ideally.

    Any thoughts welcomed.

    Thanks
    Nick

    6.5

    Look at a new or use Browning A bolt composite , as euopean guns (euro to ) is a mess , having made them almost double in price......

    The to dollar is good, A new A bolt with superb accuracy & quality build maybe 500 !! A steal in my opinion..


    Berger the Euro

    Sorry for the daft question but which is the newer?

    A bolt or X bolt?

    I am also looking for a 6.5 in stainless synthetic (counts out rem and howa and i dont like mannlichers much)

    X-Bolt is newer, but im not sure if they are doing 6.5x55, might be wrong. Anyway, my money would be on the Brownings now for the reasons stated and they are a very good rifle.

    A bolt - x bolt

    which ever you choose, its a good quality US made gun, & them guys may not shoot much , but they do however make fantastic passionate rifles.
    howa & the likes , dont compare !

    Thanks guys.
    Yes - I said he should get an Xbolt as my new one (.243) is grand. I paid 700 though not 500!?
    However, he's set on 6.5x55 - everyone seems keen on this calibre at the moment but I find a .243 fine for all UK deer..

    Nick,

    York Guns has a s/h Tikka 695 listed at the moment. In my opinion a far superior piece of equipment to the current T3 efforts.

    Good luck,

    Tim
