Thanks for giving me the opportunity to become a member of Africa Hunting.com. I am looking forward to learn from the experience possessed by members of this site. I wasn't aware of this site until I was searching for some "modern" handloading info for my new 6.5 x 55 Swede Barrett Fieldcraft...found some good info.
Have a good day,
Duane

Anything you want to know about 6.5 Swede rifles contact @Shootist43 as he has several and knows the hand loading info.

Welcome aboard Orange 1948. I see you have and reload for a 6.5 x 55. If you haven't already take a look at Nathan Foster's Knowledgebase for the 6.5 x 55 Swedish Mauser. The website http://www.ballisticstudies.com/is by far the best I've ever read re this caliber. Nathan has written a number of books on long range hunting rifles, calibers, bullets etc. I have all of them, they are a tremendous resource. He considers the 6.5 x 55 a handloader's dream. After working up to the loads he uses I can see why. As Charlie said, PM me if you want more information.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
