    WTB "modern' 6.5x55

    Hello guys

    I'm after a 6.5x55 that will handle full modern loads ( so no disrespect but I'm not keen on a '96 action) with a wooden stock and at least a 22" barrel. I'm watching a Husky 1600 on TM, if nothing better comes up that would just about fill the bill.

    I'm not too fussy about outside condition but it must have a perfect barrel and be a proven shooter.

    I already have a heavy 'ish 6.5/06 so I'd like something reasonably light.
    Thanks

    Foster
