I have two 6.5x55's. One is a Tikka T3, the other is a sporterized 96. I am getting ready to load some Hornady 95 grain v-max loads for them. I am going to tinker around with the load in both guns. Planning on using IMR 4895 powder. Where do I need "stop" at one the mauser? Not planning on loading real hot. Just playing around with a possible varmit round. What are my limitations with the 96?

What year was your M96 manufactured?

Not sure. Scope and mounts are on top. On the left side I can see CARL and GEV below it before the mount covers it up. Right side you can see STADS and TORI below it.

On the left side, the barrel and receiver are stamped 406523 with HK in front of the nmber ono the receiver.
