What scope should I get for my CZ?

The 6.5×55 rifle was acquired first, as already mentioned, and it was quickly topped with a Nikon Monarch 4x40mm scope. This scope is extremely bright and clear and its 40mm objective seems to go well with the CZ and the medium height rings needed for bolt clearance.

What is the speed of a 6 5 55 round?

The initial 6.5×55 loading was a 156 grain round nose bullet at about 2300 fps. Later this was changed in favor of higher velocity and flatter trajectory to a 139 grain spitzer bullet at about 2800 fps. That was hot stuff back in the day and it remains a very useful hunting load today.
