(info on forming, a few loads)

(misc info, also, what dies can be used instead of expensive 6.5x53R dies)

I'm not sure on 6.5, just googled it. The first link, I use myself. His data's typically pretty good. For 60 bucks, it seems like a DANG good deal!congrats man!even for a sporter :)

http://www.aco4u.com/ammo/amomil.html 33 bucks for a box of 6.5x53R?...I'm not really sure what you're looking for. I like scrounging the internet, but I haven't really found much else besides what I've given you already :? are you looking for info on the gun or on the cartridge?and what specifics?
Thank you, and sorry if I come off wrong, I'm just confused as to what you're looking for :)

If your into reloading, the brass can be made from .303 Britt brass with no real problems. The cartridge is very underrated. It has an edge on the Carcano and the Jap round. The bore is made for a heavier,round nose bullet.
I have the full rifle and a handy little carbine. They both shoot well.The Mannlicher action is well made using very good steels. The action is very strong .

I have a Dutch KNIL M.95 long rifle in original configuration and it's really nice. I've only done preliminary load testing for it but the bore is mint as is the crown so I expect I should have great results.

Btw the clips and ammo are worth $50!

I'd go restoration, but that is personal preference. With a long barrel, do you also get a good long sight radius?
