He owns a 6.5x55 and uses it for a backup rifle for his clients, he must not hate it too bad. He just acknowledges its limitations and stresses the need for using the proper projectile in it.

Today, my Swede continues to serve as an extremely accurate, mild recoiling back up rifle for our hunting clients. With the benefit of hind sight, this rifle is a reliable killer when loaded with the 140 grain Partition, driven into the major bones of the chest to maximize wounding on tough animals. That said, the Swede is not nearly as forgiving as the .270 Winchester and heavier, especially when wind drift and bullet drop cause shot placement error.
