Hi, I have close to 1000 rounds of a 6.5 x53R packaged in cardboard boxes, with waxed paper between each row, 42 per box. Is anyone familiar with these rounds? I have been trying to find more info about the value of them.
The boxes say 42 P.6.5 mm F.N. - 36 P.S.M. 55-1R KL. 111 2 Aug.1955 On the rimm it says 36 22 2C and a letter mM all 90 degrees apart.
I bought them about 35 years ago, as my dad gave me a carbine that he got when in WW11 in Germany that used 6.5 x53R ammo. I had a difficult time finding them, so when I did I bought a large amount. I shot a few, but will probably just hold onto the gun as a keepsake.
As for my questions, are they of much value? Are they at all rare? How/where would I go to sell them? I am in Upstate NY. Is there a way to ship them around the US, if I were to find buyers? Any guidence will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help John
