    Yep. Sako 75 and others.

    In the same cartridge class, look at 260 REM, 6.5x47 Lapua, 6.5-06, etc.

    Yeah, the round remains quite popular in Europe, especially in the places where it was .mil issue back in the day.

    CZ 550 is probably a good make and model to check out, but there are a bunch of other options. May have to special order them if your local stores don't stock them, but they are out there.

    Winchester chambered the model 70 in 6.5 right before they went belly up.

    The CZ would be where I'd throw my hat if I was going to buy one ready built. Myself, I am planning on building a 6.5x55 on a Yugo Mauser.

    The Winchester M70 Featherweight was made in 6.5x55mm...

    The Howa 1500/Lightning is also available in 6.5x55mm...

    Winchester, Remington in their "Classic" series, Ruger, CZ, Sako, Cooper, and I believe Inter-Arms once had some of their Mark Xs chamber for it. There may be others I`m not aware of. You might want to look at the 260 Rem also. It is a dead ringer for the 6.5x55 as far as ballistics and is also available in a few different rifles.

    Steyr also makes at 6.5x55. CDNN has them at great prices about 6 or 8 months ago.
