Hard stuff to find. IMHO, stay away from the Prvi. I hear that it is slightly undersized, and it sure acts like it in my Carc. Accuracy suffers appreciably when I use it.

I have some (prvia, I've not had issue with it) as well as reloading dies and clips, but you'll have to take the rifle along with it.

What type of Carcano and how much?

What type of Carcano and how much?

it's an 1891 built in 1897 by Brescia that's been modded by hacking the barrel and stock down to carbine length (still has the handguard) with 5 or 6 clips, 30 rounds of factory ammo and 10 reloads and a set of lee dies for $125 FTF.

It shoots very well but you'll need to get the long roundnose bullets to reload with, because the regular spitzer bullets I've used don't feed smoothly.
