    I bought some from my local dealer a while back, they cost 75 each. GMK had them in stock at the time so there wasn't a long leadtime. I think there were 3 versions, Magnum, Standard and 22-250. The Standard would accept 6.5x55 plus all the cartridges based on the 30-06 case.

    There are 5 different magazines.

    The USA site doesn't have the right magazine, as there are only 4 part nos. below.

    Magazine:
    S5840374
    S5840375
    S5840376
    S5840377

    GMK only has (or probably had) 3 of the above, so no joy there I think.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    I've just checked and the 6.5x55 does have it's own magazine.

    Yep.

    I've got all of the 5 variants, and the magazine for the 6.5x55 is different from that for 'standard' (.30-06) cartridges.

    It would be easier to get one from Scandinavia where it's a common calibre.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    Interesting, the standard 30-06 family cartridge versions use the same magazine as the 7mm Rem Mag, 300 Win Mag and 338 Win Mag versions. Out of curiosity I tried some 7mm Rem Mags in the magazine I use for 270 Win, they fitted and seemed to strip off reasonably well, albeit with only 4 instead of 5 cartridges. Quite handy if you wanted to convert a M695 or M658 to .284 Win or 6.5-284 Norma.
