History of 6.5x52mm Carcano Ammunition

6.5x52mm Carcano was developed in 1891 and is often referred to as 6.5 Italian due to its country of origin. It was one of the first "smaller bore" cartridges to be used by militaries in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It offers reduced recoil and a flatter trajectory at long range when compared to other military cartridges of the era, such as .30-06 and 7.62x54R.

Original loads were 160gr bullets at 2200-2300fps, but newer production ammunition has 123 or 140gr bullets at higher velocities, up to 2700fps.

The 6.5 Carcano was primarily chambered in the M1891 Carcano rifle used by the Italian armed forces during World Wars I and II.
