    I have an opportunity to purchase a Norwegian Krag from a friend. I've wanted one for a while, but after much research I'm realizing finding reliable, safe ammo can be a problem.

    I don't handload, nor wish to, does anyone out there have knowledge of how to obtain 6.5x55 Krag spec ammo?? :banghead:

    Well if you pass on it,I know someone that would be interested.
    He has a number of them and is always looking for more.
    That said,they are fun guns,but to make them shoot,one really needs to
    reload for for them.
