I had to buy a bunch of Prvi for my 6.5x55 for the brass, but what great brass it is, I have reused those 100 brass for years, did the math later and that Prvi costs me less then Norma brass does.

That's what I'm doing now, I have about 25 pieces of brass so far.

i have used some of the Prvi brass for my 308. it's not bad for reloading. i haven't run into any problems with it yet.

i buy the cheaper green box Remington ammo for using for reloads. after all some it actually shoots decently too. the main component is the brass anyways.

I found a nice swede mauser at the gun show for $300. It had no blueing left whatsoever, but it was in good shape otherwise, especially the crown.

Axxe, you don't want a 6.5x55. I own 3 and they are not all they are cracked up to be.
