    Tikka T3 6.5x55

    Trying my luck, any 6.5x55 T3's out there? must be good condition and unchopped.

    Are you worried about chopped because of potential velocity loss?

    But you just got rid of the Creedmoor. ....isn't that similar performance to the 6.5x55?

    3 more inches of barrel and about 6 grains more capacity at the end of the day anyone can argue the similar performance from all the 08 based cases.

    Edit: still looking

    I have a suppressed one but it's had the chop to 20", still a good shooter though, might be upgrading to 7mmRM for my LR hunting on reds so could be available
