Is there any reason why cases, dies, gauges etc for the 6.5x47 Lapua should be so expensive? It's not a proprietary cartridge, being CIP/SAAMI listed, so can any maker chamber it or produce reloading gear without paying royalties to Lapua? I just don't know why Lapua brass in 308 should cost £60/100 but Lapua brass in 6.5x47 costs £120/100. Reloading dies seem to be similarly marked up over more common calibres.
I'd like to get a rifle re-barrelled to 6.5x47, but hate the idea that I'd be gouged for the required equipment. The 6.5 Creedmoor looks much better value, even the loaded ammo from Hornady is reasonably priced.
