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??

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.
