    Re: Last word about other calibers...

    I know lots of people who have 6.5x55 rifles. They like them alot. Does anyone know if a 6.5x55 round will work in a 7.62x51 magazine.

    6.5x55 has significantly longer OAL than 7.62x51 in standard loadings. Other factors that almost certainly rule out 6.5 Swede as an XCR-M option are its bigger rim diameter and greater case taper.

    All true.Another question is why?...I mean the .260 is better in every way for this application.Not taking anything away from the 6.5x55 as it is a sweet old girl,it's just not logistically prudent.
