6.5x50 jap.

T*lquin said: just wondering if anyone here loads Jap brass at all and if you have any tips for me .using the H site that is stickied for load info but any info is great. one question I can think of right off the bat is ; do you use large rifle primers for these or not?

mb*go3 said: The Hornady manuals have lots of data and yes it uses LR primers.Norma and Privi Partisan is the only brass I'm aware of .May be more? Harold

T*lquin said: Yeah I was checking out that site. I guess the only question is ; Seeing as getting 6.5/50 ammo is rare to find unless i want to shell out 50$ plus shipping can i cut down 6.5x53 (which I think is swedish) or is it 6.5x55 or would that involve fireforming and whatnot?

k*vin.303 said: no the 6.5x50 is a semi rimmed case and as far as i know it is unique to it's self. that said i seem to remember seeing somewhere someone was making it out of .270 brass....

T*lquin said: Well Kev if only you guys carried this case i wouldn't have to go hunting for it.... ;)

T*lquin said: epps has it , but when i called it was 45 or 55 for 100. I'm looking to get some from the states.
