Foreign Ammo

Where can I get brass or factory ammo for 6.5X58mm Rim. I have Australian cases but they are impossible to form as the bases for 3/8" above the rim are solid, and will not even form in conversion dies. Any suggestions? Thanks Pete

    For my PPK I was recommended German ammo like Geco. Where can I purchase this? I can't seem to find it anywhere online or in my gun stores?

    This is a partial answer:
    If no luck with the Geco, then get Sellier & Bellot, or Norma. Those manufacturers take a back seat to no one. Best, Joe

    My .32acp Walther PP shoots Magtech ammo better than the big 3. Geco is a close second.

    Try GOOGLEING either GECO or RWS ammo. Years back I bought a case of the RWS .32 auto. It worked really well in a number of .32 pistols, I then owned, (it seemed to function much better then the U.S., made stuff). Both GECO & RWS are hard to find though, it doesn't appear they are commonly imported and sold in the States.

    American ammo in most European calibers is underloaded.
    That's one reason 9mm.'s (9x19mm. P.08 or "Luger") reputation here was so bad for so long, and for MANY decades after much of the world had decided it was the most efficient handgun cartridge around, and had
    adopted it. That was partially due to shortcomings in the
    S&W M39's strength, of course. But European autos like
    brisk ammo, and always have. S&B, Hirtenberger, Lapua,
    Norma, even Hungarian stuff--it's all around, and works
    better.
