    if you don't already have one, you will love this caliber. My buddy has a sako rebarreled in 6.5-06imp. What a round! With the 140 Amax, we killed 2 antelope and 2 deer, 3 of them were one shot drops and one took no more than a dozen steps and done. Almost no exit holes, and not alot of meat torn up.

    Good luck! If you don't find some dies on here, try the regular redding dies, I believe they are pretty affordable. For a seating die you can use the hornady 6.5 standard seating die. It works for any 6.5 caliber, just registers on the neck...

    I recently bought mine at Sinclair. They had them in stock. They also had a 6.5-06 Comp. seater die that I picked up and had my smith turn into a 6.5-06AI Comp seater die.

    If you can't find some here give Sinclair a try. They have them in stock.
