Any sources readily available for this obsolete round?
Can the chamber be reamed to a more common round of similar pressures?

If you can go 6.5X57 R these guys have brass and might even make it.

Silver,
I believe the 6.5x48r Sauer is based on the British .360
2 1/4-inch case. Dimensions can be found in European Sporting Cartridges by W.B. Dixon. Dimensions were "normalized" (standardized) for the 6.5x48r Sauer in 1923.

Yes it is based on the 0.360" 2 1/4" BPE and one should be able to form from it. Buffalo Arms forms the 0.360" 2 1/4" from 30-40 Krag. I'll check but I think Mike Ford who has penned a series in the GGCA publication has formed some. I hope the example doesn't see a reamer.

Kind Regards,

One has to reload for this round, I suppose.

Silver,
My .360 2 1/4" brass came from Bertram.

Silver I have a single shot for this round and I bought cases and dies for it about 2 months ago. It looks weird with all that taper but shoots well.

Mike,

This is a 6.5x48 R Sauer, not 6.5x58.
