Just got one on the auction side; it should be here late next week. I read a couple of old posts and wonder if anyone is still reloading for this cartridge. I've got RCBS dies and a shell holder (it takes a #9, the same as the .35 Rem.). My stash includes 200 RWS cases, a part box of Norma 156 gr. cartridges, about a box and a half of the old Dominion 160 gr. cartridges, and various 6.5 bullets. I wish Sierra still made their 160 gr. semi-pointed bullet--they shot really well in my Swedes. Anyone got any pet loads? I know Ken Waters wrote some articles on the 6.5x54 in Handloader magazine and I probably have a copy somewhere but would never be able to find it.
