Bought the last 11 boxes at Four Seasons and last 8boxes of 8x57 at Callaghans. Forget 6.5x55 swede, I can't find it ever.
Anybody know where theres any of either?

Give Foster Bear Outfitters a call (Foster RI) (401) 647-4867

Last time I was in there (a few months ago), I'm pretty sure that he had some and the prices weren't awful.

Just checked Rcmp has hornady ammo
303 Brit 200/270$
6.5x55 200/260$
762x54r 200/270$
8x57 200/270$
Not surplus ammo but by far better prices that I have seen locally.

You can't find the 6.5x55 Prvi or Igman (Hotshot) around reasonably?
I reload it and have several boxes of FFV Norma AB, Swede surplus and one S&B in my stash, but it's not worth shipping (unless you're around SE CT).

I shoot it, but I shoot mostly my reloads in the Swede.
These items only amount to about 5 boxes; it's rather a pain to ship UPS. If you can arrange to meet in North Stonington or Branford, I would sell it. I'll pm you more details...

6.5---try Plymouth bay outfitters, they usually have some. Be ready to pay around $1/round. Online prices are not much better, and all I could ever find was PRVI partizan (spelling?)

that 6.5 is the worse I have ever seen. Over $1 per round is way too much. Same with the 7.62. $270 for 200 rounds????? WTF are they made of gold?
