6.5X55 Swede Best Factory Ammo??

I don't reload nor intend to get back into it(don't shoot enuff anymore). I have been researching plus shooting a number of 6.5 Swede factory offerings. The Hornady Superformance 140 grain Interlocks shoot/kill well on deer. I've also shot some Norma PH Oryx 156 grain which is the one I plan on using for both deer & bear here in PA. They are very accurate out of my CZ 550 full stock rifle. The Oryx bonded bullet is highly rated plus Sweden's Norma loads this ammo hotter(2,559 fps) than the standard American cartridge manufacturers. A lil salty but with number of rounds I shoot...not a factor.

Would enjoy any input from any other 6.5 Swede guys here!!

It's tough being a Swede guy in a Creedmoor world.

By then it will have taken more deer than the 30-30 or 30-06.

Loggy,

How about a pic of your 550FS? I love to looks of full stocked rifles.

Good luck, Tony

Sure Tony. Pic of my CZ full stocked Swede along with this PA Buck killed with a Hornady Superformance 140 grain Interlock. My 6.5 Swede CZ 550FS is one of my favorite rifles. The beautiful Turkish walnut isn't given justice in pic.

Not this year. Wife says I bought too many guns this year. I think at some point this Winter I'll get one.
