The 6.5x55 is not really a long action cartridge.
Although it is often chambered in a long action.

The Sako 85 actions are available in 5 different lengths (CSA),
providing the very best functions for each cartridge size.
However, SAKO chambers the 6.5x55 in a medium length action - not long ... not short.
