I've been reading some threads on rifle calibres and have picked up that some European countries (France in particular) are reluctant to allow visitors to use military calibres.
I am not planning on going abroad to shoot anytime soon so my question is purely academic. However I wondered - in this context, is 6.5 x 55 classed as a military calibre. I understand it was originally used by the Swedish army, but I assume its long since been replaced.
Thanks for your help.
