    T3 6.5x55 for sale

    T3 6.5X55.
    -18" barrel
    -Suppressor
    -Leupold rings
    -Nikko Stirling 3-4x40

    Likes the 120 and 140 Amax, 140Berger, 140 SST, 120TTSX, and 160 Hornady round nose.
    H4831, ADI 2209 and IMR7828 all work well. Short barrel has not hurt the velocity, 2700fps is the 140gn average. TTSX can go 3000.

    $1200.

    Really good, no development, just used the same load and 3/4" at 110 straight away, development can only improve it, but I'll save that for when my Amax box is empty, will go to the 130/140 Berger probably. It really liked the 160gn round nose, shovelled them out at 2530fps and 1/2", will be a stonking bush load, shoots +1" high at 110 where the Amax is +3" and same windage.

    Be interesting to compare notes on Mt Thomas some time .

    Ummm, note the top pic shows my Vx3 dial up scope, rings and rail they are not part of the deal!, bottom pics show the scope and rings that actually come with the rifle, the bipod and sling not included.

    Rifle is routinely 3/4 moa to way out there, especially with 140 Bergers , and often better.

    How many rounds has it fired and what condition is it in?
    How many rounds through the suppressor and does it have alloy or stainless baffles?

    Maybe 250 odd, condition is good, same for suppressor, baffles are whatever Robbie sticks in a suppressor.
