I'd go with a 3.5-10 or even a 3-9x40.  The 3-9 has better eye relief.

I always prefer the 4.5-14x44 but that is my personal preference.

...and the 3.5-10 has wider field of view... and so on... just whichever magnification better fits your purpose and your pocket book.
 Any of the three mentioned would do well with the 6.5x55.
Have you gone to the Zeiss website and played with their ballistics calculator for the different scopes?
They will each have a different optimum magnification setting for the load(s) you plan to use and that might help you decide.
