Thanks Brad,
I have never heard something about the 6,5 x 65R and the 10x50R.
Are they straight cases?

Again,what’s the meaning of GSP,T and MB codes?

Pivi, these codes were used in my two volume book “European Sporting Cartridges” to give a unique code for each cartridge grouped by type:

GSP = German Sporting
T = Tesching
MB = 11mm Mauser based
