Made infamous by the assassination of JFK, the 6.5x52 Italian or 6.5x52 Carcano was originally a military cartridge that was developed from 1889 to 1891 for the 1891 Carcano rifle which was designed for the Italian military to use smokeless powder. The Carcano rifle was officially adopted in 1891. The relatively small diameter of the bullet was thought of as underpowered, compared to the more common 7mm or 8mm bullets in use with other European military forces, but the 6.5 bullet benefitted from a flatter ballistic curve, less weight and recoil. The 6.5x52 Carcano remained the main cartridge in service through WW2. The round is fitted with an unindented dummy primer which preserves the look of an unused and unspent cartridge. The inert round is completely free of explosives. Price is for ONE round only. Rounds must be sent with courier.
Some markings on the base of the casing.
The size of the cartridge compared to a coin.
