Before Norma began exporting 6.5x50mm Arisaka ammo to the US, gunsmiths often reamed out the chamber with a .257 Roberts reamer. Handloaders then simply expanded the necks of the .257 Roberts cases to 6.5. Interestingly, the Europeans had been using a 6.5x57 Mauser cartridge since the 1890's and is ballistically identical to this wildcat round though they have different headspace dimensions and are not interchangeable.
