Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

reloading 6.5 carcano

#1 Post by lamontagne0527 » Sun Dec 03, 2017 12:43 pm

I have been reloading 6.5 carcano rounds and i had a box of ppu 6.5 carcano 139gr FMJ. The factory rounds werent having any issues but some of my reloads were having the primers back out and had one that got punctured. Is this because my loads are too light or too hot? My loads were all in published data no where near maximum loads.

Its just puzzling me since its only on my loads and not the factory rounds

Back out primers are low pressure. The Carcano firing pin is adjustable. If the dent looks to be too deep,back it off.

Adjustable? I replaced the pin tip on my M38 7.5 Carcano to cure a filed tip.

Gotcha so I'll just up the charges and see from there. I'll see what the ppu 139gr are running and I'll try to replicate the velocity on my loads
