Looking for 6.5x53R Dutch

I found one place on the net (Old Western Scrounger), but wondering if anyone else knows where else I can find it.

Do you want the reloadable stuff?

The new Kynoch company, I think they go under the name of KynAmCo, is making it again, although they call it by the British name of .256 Mannlicher.

Bertram Brass has begun selling new unprimed cases for the 6.5x53R Dutch Mannlicher.

Some distributors of either this new Bertram brass, or reformed .303 British brass, are folks like Old Western Scrounger, or Buffalo Arms. Buffalo Arms is somewhat cheaper, here's their website:

Here's Kynamco's website:

I handload for my 6.5x53R Dutch Cavalry and Artillery carbines. Lots of fun, but procuring brass is indeed a pain.
"Bother", said Pooh, as he chambered another round...

I was mostly looking for some surplus. I wouldn't even know how to begin reloading this stuff. I reload shotgun and .38/.357mag. only. I've never even tried the rifle yet and didn't even know what it was until recently. I bought it from a friend in a package deal(German Mauser & Steyr, $200 for both) I almost got rid of it, but now that I know it's a WWII military rifle I decided to keep it. I collect WWII firearms. I just wanted to put a few rounds through it.
