Has anyone heard anything about this? There's a thread over on the Swiss Rifle Forum about it. So far, it only seems like rumor, but rumor is, Wolf will be making 7.5x55 Swiss, and it may possibly be brass cased and boxer primed.

Anyone heard anything?

Nope.

But I'm hoping.

I would like to see it in the works.

i highly doubt it. i would think they would come out with 30-06 before the 7.5. that being said it would be awesome

Rumor is that you will be making 7.5x55 swiss soon. Is there any truth to this?

I am very interested in the possibility of wolf 7.5x55. I see alot of interest on many firearms forums also.

thanks in advance

The guy who answers the phone for wolf said that it'd be out in 2-3 months and they'll have a 174 grain bullet.

This will be sweet. I guess I'll just sit on my brick of GP11.

Someone should ask! I'd bet it will be FMJ, at least at first. Then maybe we'd see some HP or SP. I'd prefer some SP or HP, because the range I like to go to doesn't allow FMJ.

Awesome. I just put a K31 on layaway. About the time I go to pick up the rifle the new ammo will be available. Oh, and I'm looking to pick up a second K31 soon too. Something about these Swiss rifles is addicting for me.
