Default scoped 6.5x52 carcano

the carcano is nuttin pretty or special,but using hornady factory ammo the lil rifle shoots pretty decent

all 6 shots came close to bull,while poor mans pie plate targets are used

this was the best i could do using factory ammo,might get better groups using handloads

That is a nice looking rifle.

Good shooting, Lee Harvey couldn't have done better.

I've owned a Carcano, the only negative I saw with it was the "clips" that were required to feed cartridges...Nothing wrong with caliber or accuracy.

thanks Shihan...seeing how the scope is a cheap 7power tasco...its holding zero pretty good...so far!

cuate... i've never had any probs out of the brass en bloc clips for the carcano...they are a little cumbersome,but not much diffrent than the steyr mannlicher rifles & carbines
