Good morning/afternoon, My magazines are difficult to seat unless I’m putting pressure on the forward end of the bottom of the magazine. Also, the magazine will not drop free and feels “jammed” in there. I have to put downward pressure via the breach in order to pop it out. This happens with the original magazine and two new Tikka magazines as well. Anyone experience this? I’ve had zero feeding issues
I'm looking for handload info from those of you experienced with the 6.5X55 SE. I'm curious about what kind of velocity I can safely attain in a modern action. I'd like to get a new 6.5 for this fall and am considering both the 6.5X55 and the 6.5 Creedmoor. I like the new Tikka T3X and have been considering a Ruger American as well, but don't really want to replace the cheap stock. It will be a hunting rifle and something else to shoot when I get the urge. I'll probably stick to bullets it the 140gr range in either cartridge. The Creedmoor appears to top out at ~2700 fps with 140gr pills. The Swede sure seems like it could have a lot of potential in one of those new Tikka's!
