    well it turns out there is a swiss 6.5x55mm but i don't have the spec's and it could be the same round

    I don't have a base or empty case

    max case length 2.160"

    trim to length 2.150"

    overall length with projectile 3.062"

    uses a lyman shell holder 27

    unless the myth buster say's I am wrong

    I'll check it out for you in the morning 1biggun, I think I've got 3, maybe 4 different types/brands of brass in 65x55. I'll check them on some of the new unfired Privi and milt stuff I have,,,the others might be reloads in the other couple brands I have so that may only reflect the sizer die dim., but I'll get the dimensions for you from what brands I do have that haven't been reloaded. Both if you want, and I have some once fired ones too if you want those dimensions too. That should give you some good averages to work with.

    Here's the "real life" specs. I got

    Hot Shot (PPU) unfired 12.12, 2mm
    reloaded 12.12, 3 mm



    Milt ball (Sweed) unfired 12.12 ,4 mm
    fired 12.12 ,4mm tough bases?? No change.
    reloaded 12.12.4mm


    Norma reloaded cases unfired 12.12 mm even
    sorry none fired ???



    Win unfired 12.12, 2mm

    fired not loaded 12. 12, 3mm

    reloaded 12.12, 3mm


    They all seem to be pretty consistant over all with the milt ball sweedish being 100% consistant throughout. I measured 5 of each type and averaged out, but less than .002mm-.003mm seemed to be the max variance between all of them.

    Is that what ya needed 1biggun?
