    6.5x52 Carcarno Brass

    G'day

    I was wondering if someone might have 8 or 10 6.5 x52carcarno cases they might like to sell.

    I want to make some dummy rounds for a wild cat idea, to make sure they will feed as required.

    So they can be old brass just so long as I can still push the shoulder back a bit to prove a theory.

    Thanks

    @ckp you may have more luck buying a bag of 50 6.5 Jap cases from gunworks. About $80.

    The 6.5x50 Jap is actually closer to 6.5x51 and should lengthen nicely after a few shots IF it fits in the chamber (check specs, haven't time to look further into it).

    The 6.5 Jap is a semi rimmed cartridge and the rim should be turned down a bit.

    6.5 Jap is semi-rimmed with .471 across the rim behind a .455 web.
    6.5 Carcano is a rimless design with .448 rim and .445 web.

    Similar powder capacity.

    Source for data: https://www.africahunting.com/thread...carcano.22900/ except the idea of fireforming them is off the top of my skull, not based on trying it as I don't need Carcano cartridges. Hope it's helpful.

    What I am trying to achieve is essentially a lengthened 6.5 grendel case to use as the basis for a 20 cal or 6 mm wildcat to run through a Howa mini action. So just looking for a handful to mock up my idea to prove mag compatibility before spending large. Gun works has ppu 6.5x 52 carcarno brass but I am just being cheap until I know my theory works.

    Thanks
