I'm a 6.5x55 Swede user myself, but just shoot paper with mine. Last year seriously considered ordering a barrel from Shaw in .260 Remington for a Stevens 200 I wanted to rebarrel. Some of my fellow shooters at range I'm a member have come to like it. After some thought and research, decided to just add another 6.5 Swede to my collection of Swede military rifles and sporterized military rifles. Glad I did.
