- Q & A
6.5x52mm Carcano, which is also sometimes referred to as 6.5x52mm Parravicini-Carcano or 6.5x52mm Mannlincher-Carcano, was designed in 1889 and first began to see use in 1891. It was used until about 1970 by the militaries of several countries including Italy, Finland, and Germany – Nazi Germany, specifically – and saw use through multiple wars including the First Italio-Ethiopian War, the Italo-Turkish War, the Second Italo-Abyssinian War, and both World Wars. It’s a rimless, bottle-necked cartridge that was meant for infantry use and is sometimes now used for hunting deer, where it has a best range of approximately 200 yards. Perhaps this round’s most famous, or, rather, infamous, moment was its being used in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
These particular 6.5x52mm Carcano rounds are made by Prvi Partizan. Each round weighs in at 139 grain, making them quite lightweight for the cartridge size. Of course, being lighter means they’re able to race down-range at higher speeds and also helps keep felt recoil down. These are Full Metal Jacket, FMJ, rounds and do not expand on impact. FMJ rounds tend to over-penetrate, and rifle rounds can travel literally for miles before coming to a stop, so it’s vital to have a solid backstop in place. These rounds are great for target practice and plinking.
When you order this box of ammunition from Prvi Partizan you get 25 boxes containing 20 rounds each for a total of 500 target rounds. That’s a nice-sized box of ammo, one you’ll burn through faster than you might think. These rounds are produced in virgin brass cases with boxer primer and can be reloaded. If you handload, keep in mind that the bulk of available bullets today are 6.7mm, not 6.8mm, the latter of which was the original bullet size used. Each of these rounds produces a muzzle velocity of 2526 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1969 foot-pounds. Prvi Partizan manufactures this ammunition at their factory in Uzice, Serbia.
