    The chambering reamers and sizing dies for any of the 6.5x54 variants will have to be custom made. That's why I went to the 6.5x54 Mannlicher instead - and it's available in both rimmed and rimless variants.
    there should be prints on file with a reamer maker. it dont cost much more to have one cut than one off the shelf. Id guess around $150 or so another option is having a existing reamer recut have a 7.62x54 cut down to 6.5mm. I have been wantong to do a Mosin in 6.5 for a while.

    The 6.5 Mannlicher is, for all practical purposes, a 6.5x54R. Take a look at the cartridge shapes.

    biggun, didnt even get as far as looking at the case diameter on the x54 vs the others.

    Rim diameter 14.40 mm (0.567 in)
    Go to Wiki and do a search on the different rounds, most have that info on there if you don't have a reloading book.
    300 WSM is .535x2.100 take that case neck it down an you got a serious longrange rifle. better watch the pressures. Id look at the 6.5 rem short mag its pretty good if loaded a little lighter would be perfect for a PSL Im sure with some extractor work you can get a .032 smaller case head to extract.

    That's why I have a 6.5 barrel for my 1905 Ross straight-pull, and I'm setting it up for a semi-wildcat - 6.5x54 Mannlicher-Snoenauer rimless chamber reamer, shortened M-S dies, and .303 British brass. The rifle came in .303, so the bolt and magazine ought to work okay.

    There was a 6.5 Steyr-Mannlicher rimmed cartridge that predated the M-S, but dies are a lot more expensive.

    I'm also planning to do my Hadar in 6.5 Grendel; looking at the ballistic charts, the 6.5 seems to be in a "sweet spot" dor sectional density and ballistics.
