Guys, not knocking what you are saying. Experience tells me the Swedish Mauser 6.5x55 is the best caliber you can use to SURVIVE. It will bring down big game, humans and most anything you can get in the scope .It can shoot flatter, farther, than you can see. I have an M96, 1901. That will be the last rifle I get ride of. Sorta of a side note: Biden is going after the wrong rifles.
