6.5x55 swede dropped from BOTH Tikka T3 and Howa 1500 rifles lines??

Read it & weep:

http://www.legacysports.com/product/index.htm

Just 3 or 4 months ago, they both showed the 6.5x55 chambering in many versions of their rifles - no more.

What's the world coming to?

The site in Finland still lists the 6.5x55 SE. There's no way that round will dissapear in that part of the world.

In a lot of ways, here in the states, the 260 Rem makes more sense. I like the .264 bore - good selection of bullets with high SD.
