    Who makes a nice 6.5?

    Factory rifles?
    x55 or x 284. Perhaps even 260.

    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    No, but I'm sure Quentin will... He had a 6.5*55 barrel I think? Has a 6.5-284 barrel as well that you might be able to talk him out of...

    How much do you want to spend - if you can do business with them a Mauser from Stager sports might be interesting.

    How did the 9.3 dies go ??

    How much? PM me some more details if you please. Barrel length, load development, weight etc.

    Yeah I was looking at those, and also the Sauer 101's, in fact I had my heart set on the Mauser, but I saw a Sauer 101 in H&F and was less than impressed unfortunately. From what I saw online I considered the Sauer and Mauser to be of similar quality so until I can get my hands on one I will widen my net just in case

    Got the dies thanks, they actually work fairly well with a bolt popped on top of the seating die with the expander out to size the outside of the neck first like you suggested. Then use the expander in another step after. I found another stockist of 9.3x57 dies who have shipped them already so I will drop your off with Chaz soon. Thanks heaps, its been a great help.

    Not sure I consider a T3 or Zastava "nice" but thanks for the suggestion...
