6.5x52mm Carcano Ammo
The 6.5x52mm Carcano, sometimes referred to as the 6.5mm Italian, was developed in the 1890s for the Kingdom of Italy and used in both world wars as well as many other engagements.
6.5 Carcano ammo generally ranges from 123 to 156 grain and work well on deer at ranges up to 200 yards, making it a formidable hunting round.
Factory ammunition for this caliber is produced by Prvi Partizan and Norma, with full metal jackets for target shooting and soft points for hunting available.

Prvi Partizan makes six different rounds for the 6.5 x 52 Carcano, of which this 123-grain round is the smallest. It has strong energy and excellent velocity, making it a very accurate round. Compared to the larger versions of this caliber, the 123-grain bullet will drop less downrange, making it more effective for long-distance shots.
The 6.5 x 52 is roughly a .270-caliber rifle, so while it has decent speed and energy, it is certainly not the widest round available, although it does have good bullet weight. Generally, it will be a good round for medium-sized game like deer and black bear.
This round is manufactured by Prvi Partizan, a well-established ammo company based out of Serbia. Creating around 400 different rounds, Prvi makes ammo for both rifles and handguns. They are a top choice for both target shooters and hunters, as well as government agencies, who appreciate Prvi’s accuracy and consistency.
