    A collector or a shooter?

    If a shooter with something as odd as that I assume he has reloading dies. The 7.5x54 can be formed from 6.5x55 Swedish so long as the case is made to original Scandinavian specs (not US manufactured which apparently have a different head size). Bullets will be more of a challenge to get exact, they are .309" but .308 probably would work.

    Form 7.5x54 Fr from 6.5x55? [Archive] - Cast Boolits

    I've been away for ages... and whaddya know... someone else has a rifle shooting 7.5x54 French.
    Pretty hard to get ammo off the shelf. Prvi make it and I have a few packets from the past but not sure if anyone has it in stock in NZ any longer. 139gr FMJ

    But Gunworks do stock their brass, and just use 308 projectiles. A bit of info on the web if you poke around.
    If you are just using it to do a bit of service rifle target shooting, load it down a bit for comfort provided it is still accurate, with lighter FMJ projectiles no heavier than 150gr. And if it is a MAS 36, throw one of those slip on recoil pads on to extend the stock so you can shoot the darn thing without cramping up like a midget.

    Good luck.
