Hi Folks. I just noticed that it's time to buy some more 6.5 x 55 Swed brass. Anyone know of a good source, for informal shooting? Winchester or Remington brass will be fine. Thanks, Loco.

Thanks. I may try the Prvi Partizan? Anyone have any luck with their brass? Loco.

Privi Partizan brass is excellent.  I've been using it in various milsurp rifles since the 1990's with nary a problem or split.

Thanks Maven. I just ordered 100 brass and also 100 of their jsp bullets too. Might as well see how they work. Could be a good deer combo. Loco.

PRVI is the only “cheaper” brass with correct extractor groove dimensions. USA made brass is a 473 design. Lapua, Norma, PRVI are all the correct 478. Never slips. Great brass

I didn't know that. That's good information, I'll make note of that one. Thanks, Loco.

I had the same problen in 2014 and the only brass I could find was Lapua. Expensive, yes but I don't plan on having to buy more either. I had fun shooting the Swede but it won't be the only rifle I'm shooting for fun.

Privi brass has become my choice in brass. It's priced lower than most and holds up well to repeated reloading. The variety of calibers they offer is also pretty impressive. Glad to see someone stepping up and supplying the market even if it's not a domestic supplier. Gp

Nosler 6.5x55 seconds / overruns is sometimes available from the Nosler outlet store.
