    anyone use a 6.5x57r

    Hi All
    I've just purchased a Blaser K95 in 6.5x57r just wondering if any one has any experience of the cal and if anyone knows where I can get some dies from ????

    Thanks

    Wayne

    There is the problem! The internal diameter is almost identical to the 55 but brass or rounds are hard to get hold of!

    HI wayne the 6.5x57r is a rimmed version of the 6.5x57. it is used in doulble barreled rifles and combination guns. so maximum loads are slighty lower than ones used with its rimless counterpart. atb derek

    wayne from a ballistic viewpoint the 6.5x57r will provide a slight margin over the 6.5x55 while generally their ballistic performance is equal

    It comes with 400 rounds of factory ammo so brass shouldn't be a problem but I'm not sure where to get some dies from???

    Hi Ern
    I missed your call I was in the shower, thanks for your help.
    It seems accurate enough, a friend test fired it to save me travelling to try it and shot a 1/2 group off the bench, the factory ammo it comes with is 129grn rws so should be fine for every thing I want to shoot with it but I'll ahve to have a play with my beloved 100 grn b/tips if I can find some dies I'll have a ring around when I finally get my hands on it which might be a while I have to wait for West mercia to do the variation

    Hi Wayne, You bought it then! I think you will find that 6.5x57 dies will be the same as the 6.5x57r so that should make it easier to find a set (obviously different shell holder)
