Best readily available Carcano bullets
By Wade J.
on Dec 09, 2020
I have used these and the 123gr PPU .268 diameter bullets in four different Carcanos with good to great results. I usually shoot reduced loads in them just get more use out of the brass but these projectiles did well with reduced and full power loads. Other than a few boutique places making some cast bullets in this size, PPU is the only game in town. Hopefully Hornady will bring back the .268 160gr RN but who knows. In the meantime these are readily available, work well, and are affordable.

Glad I ordered as the 129 do not have a cannelure and these are easier to crimp.
Prvi Partizan Bullet 6.5MM (.268) 139gr FMJBT 100 per bag

One of the few options for the correct 6.5mm bullet for the Carcano. I haven't loaded any yet so I can't talk of their performance but the diameter as I measured the 3 that I randomly pulled out of the bag were .267 (which is going to be a lot closer than the .264 that the rest are) and weights were within about .1 grains. Of course that's just a few random samples but they should at least do better than the .264's in the Carcano?

These pills loaded up really nice using Lee dies. As others have stated they mic out at about .266 and i'm fine with that, the newest of my Carcano' s is 78 years old so getting pin point accuracy isn't a factor for me, I'm in it for the historical aspect so why stress the rifle. For that reason i won't use these in my Vetterli, I'll stick with .263 for it. Very happy with this purchase.

Tried these and the 123gr .268 bullets. Was not sure the .268 bullets would be compatible with my Lee Pacesetter die set but everything worked out fine.
Great Alternative to Unobtanium Hornady's

These load up great and shoot wonderfully in my Carcano rifles and carbines. I would like a true .268 (not .266-.267) and a little heavier 160 gr pill but these are perfect for plinking. That being said I would slug the bore if planning to use these in the Vetterli-Carcano conversions, my example's groove diameter was .264!

received these and checked them out. averaged out at about .266. compared to factory loads, are closer to correct sizing. PPU are .264. toying with loads to find a load that will make the rifle a better shooter.
A rare find, not to be taken for granted

This is one of the last .268 bullets you or I will find for a while. It fits perfectly in a 6.5 Carcano case neck just like a 160 grain one used to do.

Great for Carcanos

I recently picked up a Cavalry Carbine Carcano and did a little research before buying some bullets for reloading. Found these and decided to give them a try. The batch I got measured 0.2675" which I thought was pretty good. Reloading was fine and I had acceptable accuracy with them, about 4-5 moa with iron sights, not bad with my eyesight.

The right diameter for a carcano rifle
PPU 6.5 Carcano Bullet (.268 139 Grain)
By Michael R.
on Sep 11, 2020
This is about the best choice for reloading the 6.5 Carcano. The bullet diameter mic's out to about .267 which is perfect since Carcano's tend to be around .268 bore.
I reloaded these bullets into the 6.5 Carcano PPU brass & the fit was perfect.
Does the job

Good to have Carcano bullets available at a reasonable price.
PPU 6.5 mm (.268") 139 Gr. Bullet
By Ken S.
on Aug 02, 2020
I bought these as an alternate bullet for the 6.5 Carcano cartridge, since the Hornady #2645 bullets are sold out and have been discontinued. I am still in the process of developing a load for these, but so far, I am very impressed. I have narrowed the powder down to Accurate 4350 and I am fine tuning the powder charge for velocity. These are proving to be very accurate and this batch I bought are measuring in at .267". I have only tried these in my M-41 rifle so far, but I have no doubt that they will work well in all the others. I will be buying more.

I search many sites to find the proper bullet for my Carcano 91/24 TS. Grafs site is easy to navigate and shipped my items from inventory quickly. I will be a returning customer in the future.

Consistent weight. I have not mic'd them yet, but will next loading session. I use them in my .260 and shoot them at 2850 fps and I'm happy with how they hit on steel.
Proper size for Carcano 6.5
By Roger M.
on Aug 27, 2019
Although some others have commented that the bullets measure at .266 not .268, they are the best fit for a 6.5 Carcano I have found, because they crimp properly in the neck of the casing and fit the barrel, where the .264 bullets generally available as "6.5" ammo are simply too slim.

These pills are a great choice for plink ammo the quality and price is perfect for the reloader I've been using ppu for years and always have been happy with them.im glad grafs offers these
Not as advertized
By David O.

I thought it would be a good idea to mic these bullets before loading them, glad I did. Using 2 different dial calipers and a vernier micrometer they are about .266, not .268. Grafs would do nothing for me but gave me a number to call Privi. Am currently waiting for them to confirm what I already know.
The come in at 0.266, but work.
By Phillip L.

These bullets come in at around 0.266 in my hands, but they are excellent in an a 1929 T38 Arisaka carbine that slugs at about 0.268 in the grooves. The barrel is basically pristine, so it's well established they they were just made large early on. I've read about the PPUs coming in smaller than advertised, so, they did and it's just fine and dandy with me.
By the way, I was able to acquire 5 Chinese 6.5mms in a stripper clip headstamped 1950. I got them just to look at how they set up the freebore. Those bullets come in at 0.260. Talk about land-riders...Geeze. Haven't fired them...only did autopsies on them.

Great bullets for Carcano military surplus rifles that use a ghtly bigger 6.5 mm barrels
Type 38 Arisaka
By Zachary S.
on Jan 17, 2019
I have two Arisakas and one has a bore you can drop a .264 bullet down and it goes like 10 inches down the barrel. talk about free bore! so I bought these and the bullets drop where they should. I only shot them once and was supprized at how much copper they left in my barrel. maybe I was loading them too hot and they were coming apart? I will try a lower charge and see.

2500 ft/s Max
By Michael W.

These bullets brought my T38 Arisaka with a worn .270" barrel back to life. I pushed some bullets to 2600 ft/s and they came apart, but at 2500 ft/s or less they stay together.
