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

Welcome to AH sir!
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.

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there

Wow, great response regarding the title of a thread and an amazing site.

I am interested in hearing about your wild lion hunts.

Greetings Mr. Rutledge. My apologies for the latent reply, cell/email prohibited during working hours, apx 72 a week, yikes! I just wanted to thank you for keeping me in mind for possible 577 loads. I actually purchased a few rounds, however, the firearm is still on the fence at this point.
Many Thanks, again. Regards, Dan.
