    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:confused:

    That is a nice looking rifle.

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

    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;)
