I've about decided on buying a K31 and have found Boxer primed ammo @ Cheaper Than Dirt, SO, anyone know a source of dies and or reloading data?
Thanks,
Paul

I've been using the Lee dies. Naturally there is quite a bit of debate about that. I'd also warn you in advance that the OAL published in most reloading manuals is incorrect for the K31.

The Redding die is made specifically for the K31, which has a slightly wider shoulder than the older K11/1911 rifle. It's easier on the brass.

Of course, should you ever get one of the older rifles and want to reload for it you'd have to buy another sizing die.

I know the Sierra manual gives data for swiss rifles. You can also go to the SwissRifles.com page for data:

Here's another load data source:

Midway USA has dies. So does Cabelas. I got new 7.5x55 brass from Graf's.
