    This load was published in a Swedish hunting magazine, including photographs of the targets.

    Bullet: Sierra HP 1700 85 grains
    Gunpowder: Norma 202, 46 grains
    Primer: CCI 250
    Casing: Norma

    Rifle: Varberger 717 and a Sako 75 SS
    Chronographed velocity: 1010m/s(around 3030fps)

    Seems like a really nice load...

    Interesting.

    Not much for long range, but I bet its a pleasant to shoot varmint round, and with a group like that, its OBVIOUSLY accurate!

    I really like the 85 grain Sierra 6.5mm hollowpoint.

    I use this bullet for my 6.5x55mm+p load.

    85 grain Sierra bullet
    49 grains of IMR-4064
    Remington brass, Winchester large rifle primer
    Muzzle velocity: 3500fps.
    Accuracy: better than .5MOA.

    Note: THIS LOAD IS FOR MODERN RIFLES ONLY. NOT FOR USE IN THE SWEDISH MAUSER. ( FOR USE IN SAKO, REMINGTON, WINCHESTER, RUGER, STEYR ETC.)

    Mad.

    What are some of the good factory 6.5x55 loads out there? I was looking at Lapua's site and they have two great long range loads with the 139 scenar and 123. Both of the silver loads perform on par with federal 300 Win mag 190gr match ammo at 1000meters.
