    6.5x55 ammo???

    hi all
    has anyone done any homework on 6.5x55 ammo it seems to be harder to get hold of and the range of size is even more of a problem its ok if you want 140gr power shock and norma and some sako but look for any other is a problem
    cheers bob

    Morning,
    I'm a RFD and i own a range, so i'm always on the lookout for ammo. I also use a 6.5x55, hornady do a 140gr sp/interlock which is a great round, if you load your own they have a range of eight from 85gr upto 160gr. Federal also do a 140gr, sellier & bellot have three types of ammo all 140gr.
    hope this helps.

    Locally to me I can get RWS 140gn (occassionally), Federal Powershok 140gn (occassionally) and Norma 156gn Oryx (occassionally). That's why I took up reloading

    Sounds like a bloody Bargain!

    the cheapest i cab get 6.5x55 Norma BTs for is 35 a box...most want to charge nearer 38.....i'd stock up as it sounds like old prices to me!

    tell me about it.....can hold up to 250 rounds, buy 200 a time.....never been able to afford to buy more than 2 boxes at a time. Realoading gear nearly sorted, so should be less recoil soon
