    Check with the club you are going to shoot with a lot of service rifle shooters use the 6.5 Swede it's very popular in OZ and NZ so they must
    have projectiles that the allow.

    most clubs will let you use any pill you want in such a rifle in service class as they understand the issue if finding fmj ammo, there is of couse allways some dick range lawyering about the isued ammo but as long as your not loading smk or the like youe shoul be fine

    Gunworks have the 139gn 6.5 Prvi Partizan (PPU) FMJs.

    Gunworks Ltd - 6.5mm .263 139gr Prvi Partizan Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail

    I'm just using 140gn 6.5 Remmy corelocks in my M1938 though, as I have tons of them.
