Foxes with the 6,5 x 55

Postby StevieRVaughan » June 10th, 2018, 4:03 pm

I really think foxes should be able to be shot with the 6,5x55 since it's a small round.
Then you would have 1 of the medium size guns that could take for instance both red deer and fox.
It would really balance that gun out for both.
Maybe you could do that with the next patch.

Thanks in advance

Or maybe another kind of rifle (not .223) with the possibility for using the new long range scope :D

SImilarly I think the .17HV should be good for arctic sheep and sitka, dropped both effortlessly.

No matter what one thing is clear:

It's a damn shame the 6.5X55 (as well as the .270 and what more?) hardly ever comes out the closet. The blaser version even has its own unique scope. But it's just laying there. In the closet. Hard to justify it when scrolling through the inventory.

Yeah you hit the nail on the head. It actually is a really awesome kaliber.

Its really strange that you can shoot a turkey with a .223 , but cant shoot a goose with the .44m sporting hand gun hmm!!!!. And the .357 on a fox but not a turkey but a goose you can .. Am i nuts! , prolly so..
