    I truly believe that this is a typo.

    It most likely should read, "Arisaka".

    Notice the box. . . . it says, "6.5 JAP"

    i thought that too, but after quickly looking at the site other rounds have straing names after them

    7.5x55 SWISS 180gr ORYX
    7.62x54R 180gr NATURALIS
    6.5x52 CARCANO 156gr ALASKA

    Google, guys, Google... for like, you know, Norma, man.

    Alaska is Norma’s oldest bullet – a traditional hunting bullet with a lead tip which has been manufactured since the 1940´s. It is known for its excellent expansion and good penetration and therefore very suitable for medium-sized game even at longer ranges and medium velocities.


    • Thick rear jacket section
    • Pure lead core
    • Thin forward jacket section
    • Crimping increases dependability


    The other funny Swedish brand names are there, too.

    Thanks, Jim.

    I never even gave it a thought.

    Norma calls them "Alaska" because they cost as much as the state did in adjusted dollars.

    Bullet

    Probably refers to the bullet (if it's not a typo). 156 gr is heavy for a 6.5 so...big critters.
