    My Swedish M96 rifle

    I ran across this rifle this past Spring, I knew nothing of these rifles but it is a beauty. It has all matching numbers and a barrel that is shiny as a new dollar with sharp lands & grooves...shoots better than I am able to!

    That's a very fine example. The barrel condition disk shows it to be in very good condition.

    Everyone says these shoot much better with handloads. I have the equipment to reload, no dies for the 6.5x55 but I have no plans to reload right now. Let us know how your rifle does with the hand loads.
