Re: 5 carbines just listed, sold ASAP?????

One of my regrets is not getting a carbine when they were cheap. Money was tight and I just couldn't justify it. I've since learned that almost all rifle prices just keep going up. Some day, the CMP will run out of Garand rifles, the price will go through the roof. They set the bar now, but someday ...

Re: Classic has Carcano Calvary Carbines

That is fascinating. I didn't know these things. I think I'll stick with the ones I have. I even got a duffle cut long rifle, the barrel looks brand new. I won't say what I paid for it, because today it would look like thievery. One of my most prized Carcano accessories is a leather cavalry scabbard...

Re: Classic has Carcano Calvary Carbines

It is crazy how a few years changes things. I was collecting Carcano rifles because they were cheap and nobody seemed to want them. Most were bought for $100, sometimes less. Perhaps it is time to start selling some. I wonder who had these hidden away for so long. Does anyone know if they are new im...

Canada has fallen to the gun grabbers

It looks like our Canadian friends have lost the good fight to retain their firearms. Over the next two years their government is going to take all of what they consider military style weapons. It is a sad day for freedom loving Canadians. This will embolden the U.S. gun grabbers.

Re: B.O.H.I.C.A. Here we go, off to the races again!:

Interesting legislation in that the title has nothing to do what is in the bill. You go to a dealer, get a number issued. You then make the firearm (you have 90 days). You then go back to the dealer and he verifies you did it. It seems like then you could sell it? They don't say you can't. The probl...

Re: 2018 - Mosin Nagant Prices

I'm not paying $300 for a Mosin even if I didn't have any. They can keep them in their warehouse and admire them themselves.

Re: Cast Bullets for Carcano

What type of powder are you going to use? For that (cast) bullet weight 30 grains of IMR 4350 is a nice accurate load. Also had some success with IMR 4895. 28.2 grains did ok. FYI, I never took these loads out further than 100 yards for accuracy. They grouped well at the 50 yards. I have since sold...

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

72 usmc, I've got some of these, but I haven't loaded any yet. http://gardnerscache.com/6_5mm_170_fp_g_c.html The older Lee die set had .264 and .268 expanders. You might find a used set. The new die set only has the .264, but they will make a .268 expander for an extra $10. You can check it out on ...

Most of you have probably read this, but if not, here you go. From the man himself that developed the load for the infamous Hornady bullet.

I'd fire it first and see how it does. You might be surprised. That will at least give you a benchmark if you decide to move ahead.

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

I think we know who is not a fan.LOL They do work in some and not in others. I never had a case failure. I've read about some failures and many times (not all) they didn't follow the Hornady recipe. Oh well, we could debate this forever. It's been debated for 15 years or so. Lots and lots of threads...

I've got one short Turk that I've never fired. Perhaps it is time. I loved it when the Turks were cheap. Those were great days.

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

72usmc, The bullets he is referring to are the Hornady .267 bullets. Some people REALLY hate them and consider them dangerous. The key to using them is to FOLLOW the Hornady recipe in their reloading manual and slug your rifle. You've got to have the proper diameter. I have some original Carcano amm...

Graff boxed ammo used Privi cases and Hornady bullets.
Oh, that's interesting. I didn't know they were doing that. Have you tried that ammo? I've shot the Hornady .267, but I reloaded my own. I always slugged the bore of the rifles I wanted to use it in. If too tight, I didn't try it.

Since that ammo uses the Hornady bullet . I do not think I am wrong .
???? Are you saying Privi Partizan uses the Hornady bullet? I've bought lots of Privi Partizan Carcano ammo and never got a box with Hornady bullets.
