    Looking for Brass and dies if available for the 7.65 x 53 Belgian Mauser cartridge.
    I know Norma made a fair bit and I may have to spend cash later this month but I would rather trade some brass I have if possible.
    I have 7.62 x 39, .303, 7x57 and loads of 6.5 swedish! In the main once fired.
    I would pay cash if none of these are of interest!
     
  2. Whilst I cannot help you with the 7.65 Belgi I would be interested in buying some 6.5 Swede brass off you. I lose quite a bit of brass when shooting at the fish farms and am always on the scrounge for more. PM me if you are can sell. Cheers.

    You shoot fish with 6.5 x 55?

    How big are the fish?

    If you are stuck I can get new brass for about Euro 50 a 100.

    A batch of 120 Privi cases went for Euro 15 on Egun in August, but nothing there at the moment.

    Yes please RCBS preferred, I will probably order some in next month but unsure whether to go full length or neck only?

    Well I had a bit of cash paid in so I bought 280 Norma 150 grain soft point loaded rounds, The rifle is paid for so I should see how bad that is soon enough. I have just seen a lovely example of a 1904 Portugese 6.5 Mauser Vergueiro unaltered. Very temmpted. If I get the job tomorrow that may just have to follow me home!
    I wont butcher a good example unless its for a special conversion but I will possibly look out for one of these for a sporting conversion!
     
  9. If you get full length, you can always set up an FL die to size just the neck by backing it up half a turn..!

    I have a contract with RCBS importers but its often easier to order over the net direct from the makers. I'll probably do that. If the rifle needs restocking I'm looking at a very nice part finished one at Boyds for only $74 and I have done 2 of those so far with no dramas!
