    I believe that chambering is superior to .223 although were I to do it over I would go with 6.5 Grendal

    In Sweden guns are illegal unless you use for hunting.

    Or target shooting; much the same here in Canada. BTW, I just picked up a Husquevarna M96 is 6.5 x 55; I am building it into a "Scout Rifle"; doing a full trigger job to the factory trigger; cutting and turning the bolt handle; adding see throug scope mounts, and making a new stock. Even with the stock trigger and bullets that are too light and ammo to short for the chamber, it is already a shooter. Bore and chamber, and bolt look like new! Felt recoil is mild.

    Yes, indeed they do! I owned three Carl Gustaf Mausers; bought them back in the 80's; they were military surplus and came brand-new, still packed in the grease and wrapped in brown paper from the factory: $75.00 each. Sporterized one (eventually sold it to buy a mini-14; which was a big mistake as it was the worst, least accurate rifle I ever owned) Gave another one to my father in law as a gift (he regifted it later) and sold the third. I have regretted selling them every single day since. I finally scratched that 40 year old itch this year and bought a brand new Zastava '98 Mauser in 6.5 x 55 SE (Higher Pressure loads) and love it!!! The Huski kind of fell in my lap!! Who could say no?? LOL

    I live in Southern Ontario Canada and here we are not allowed to hunt with anything bigger than .270. After the Carl Gustaf Mauser, I went to the Mini14 and the accuracy was a great dissapointment; once the barrel warmed up (after about the third shot fired) the groups would open up to the point of missing a coyote sized target at 100 yards; I owned a .22-250 heavy barrel varmint rifle, but too heavy for coyote and fox hunting. Bought a Remington 78 in .223; it was a bit heavy and had seemingly endless feeding issues with the magazine; even with new parts; built an AR15 in .223; great rifle now prohibited here (still have it locked up), and a .223 single shot Handi Rifle; nice rilfe, but bad trigger.

    Back to the 6.5... Latest rage here in Canada and the US is the 6.5 Creedmore. Why? Good marketing.

    If one compares the balistics of the 6.5 CM, the .260 Remington and the 6.5 x 55, there is none of the three that show any advantage over the others however numerically the 6.5 x 55 edges both out. If you look at the 6.5 x 55 SE for rifles with modern actions, the old Sweedish Caliber outperforms both by a significant margin.

    The workmanship on the Zastava rifles puts all of the north american rifle manufacturers to shame, and considering they are on the upper side of the economy price range makes them even more impressive. Good sights, great trigger, standard scope mounts available, turkish Walnut Stocks.

    I know practically nothing about guns, even I was to get a pistol at one time, for reasons I better not get into.
