.267" in diameter, nearly 1-1/4 long!! Some kind of Groove at rear and Hollow based. like the second from rt. below.



I found these in my "Stash". I don't remember using them...[i don't however, remember everything!] CRS!!!

Maybe from my deceased partner.

Anyway...what would be the Application??

Swede??? Carcano?? Something else??

Are the jacketed bullets .267??

Yes...They are just like the Bullet shown above..second from right. The one with a single "groove" at base, and a hollow Base.


Looking around, they are probably for a Carcano??

I spent a lot of time trying to make a calvary carbine accurate with any bullet. I believe it was a gain twist rifle barrel cut down to carbine and so was hopeless. A friend gave it to me "for free" knowing I wouldn't be able to resist spending hours trying to make it run. He still laughs about it.

No wonder Il Dulce was hung upside-down.
