Default 6.5 mm round

Hello Everyone,
I need your opinions on this topic:
I currently own a Mannlicker (SP?). It shoots a 6.5 X 54 MS round that is very difficult to find, but I love the gun. It fits me, it shoots easily, and it has relatively soft recoil as compared to a .30-06.
I have been thinking about buying a Styr in 6.5 X 55 Swedish. I have two problems:
1. I have to convince the wife
2. I have no outside opinion on this round.
I have heard that the 6.5, 160 gr bullett is excellent, so I am interested in keeping it, but in a case that is easier to obtain.

HOWEVER before I spend all that money on this rifle, I would like opinionis from people who know about these things first.
So, if any of you have experience with the 6.5 X 55 round or with Styrs in general, I really would appreciate your feedback.

Thanks so much for your help.
Most Sincerely,
Bruce Baldwin
