    Does anyone load 6.5x257 Roberts?

    I just picked up a rifle. It started life as a 6.5 Jap. There was no ammo available after the war, so original owner converted it to 6.5x257 Roberts. He gave me a box of loaded ammo and a box of brass but he could not find his dies. Per the net, some call the round a 6.5 Spence. Any information or source of ammo would be appreciated. Thanks.

    That's a wildcat . No factory ammo will be available . It's a shame the dies didn't come with the rifle . Most times the dies were cut with the chambering reamer when the rifle was chambered to insure a match . If you had them getting ammo would be a whole lot easier .
    I did a Google search on the term " Custom Ammunition Makers" a list of several came up , the largest was Extreme Custom Ammunition but there are at least eight or nine companies offering custom loaded wildcat ammo . Pull up the list and check out what they can do .
