Just got back from my uncles house, where he just purchased his 3rd 6.5x55mm Swedish Mauser. Problem is he really wants surplus 6.5 ammo. (Not sure why...old gun.... old ammo....) Anyways I have looked all over on the net for a nice little stock pile but I haven't had any luck. Anybody know something I don't?

AKAIK, the only available surplus in 6.5x55 is the "Prickskytte". From my limited translation skillz, this means means Sniper or Marksmen. It is a 146gr FMJBT loaded by none other than Norma. I've seen it as low as $5 and as high as $10 per 20. Who are we kidding though, $10 for 20 rounds of Norma is A OK by me.

My Swede likes it alot.

I bought a bunch of that stuff over the years, top notch ammo. I even have about 100 military tracers..
