6.5x55 Swedish - Long or Short 700? And build ideas...

This is a discussion on 6.5x55 Swedish - Long or Short 700? And build ideas... within the Cartridges & Calibers forums, part of the Sniping Related category; I've got Shilen, Pac Nor and MTR on my list of barrels right now. Of the three, any opinions regarding superiority? Thanks much again! Cheers....

    I like the fact that Montana Rifle Company has 6.5mm barrels with a one in 7.5" twist. This is the very same twist that was used by the Swedes.

    (In case you are wondering, one turn in 7.5" is a metric twist--one turn in 190 mm.)

    If you are building a 6.5x55mm, it only seems right to use the exact Swedish twist. And the Swedish Mauser is a great shooter especially with 142 and 155 Sierra Match Kings.
