    Awesome, they've added 6.5x55. I've spent some time working at the local gun store here in my part of Norway, and we sell alot of Fusion in .308 and .30-06. now with 6.5x55, a pretty popular caliber here, it's probably gonna sell even more. A very good cartridge from what i've heard.

    I love 6.5x55, and I'm very happy to see a major ammo maker throw their weight behind the caliber.

    Right now I'm happy with the surplus ammo I have, but if I stumble over a large pile of money I will sent some of it to Federal.
