    I like the Gustaf 6.5x55 so much I own three. All model 96's. Two sporters and one Kimber of OR. I run 140 gn Interlocks in all of them. They'll be with me until I'm dead, if there was a way to take 'em with me I would.

    You would shoot the barrel out!

    Truthfully, it is not antique. It will have to ship to an 01FFL or an 03 FFL. It is C&R eligible. I have a 03.

    I did a search (6.5 x 55) on a auction site we wont mention the name of.
    They had 1 auction going for 5 cartridge's.
    No Guns chambered for 6.5 X 55.

    Prvi 6.5X55 (boxer primed hunting ammo on sale ) is going for around $20 a box in the stores where I live.

    When its on sale, I usually by 5 boxes at a time. It ends up being the same price as byng a 100 count bag of just brass.
