How much would a full box of winchester 6.5 carcano go for?

If you are referring to the white box with Alcan 600x lot numbers I think they are going for over a C note. 'Oswald' ammo and all 'Oswald stuff' is high. :)
Used to be on Auction arms every so often.

PS They sold for about $2.00 a box in the early 60's from Century Arms I believe.

According to what I have read there were four lots 6000, 6001, 6002, and 6003 of one million rounds. They were loaded with 161 grain bullets and 44 grains of WC Ball powder from lots 40816 and 40817. They had a gilding-metal jacket and a lead core. Muzzle velocity was approximately 2,400-fps. As stated the box and the cartridges are very valuable. David

Franchi has it right. Go to the Warren Commission website for very complete info. BTW, About six-8 months ago one of the auction sites had an original box of the Winchester Western 6.5 Carcano ammo, lot 6001 as I recall. I was prepared to go pretty high for it, but when it hit $250, it became clear that this box of ammo was not going to be mine. Finally topped out at about $550, which is more than I paid for the whole Kennedy rig, correct rifle and correct scope, combined. Phew!
If that is the going rate then I will learn to do without.
p.s. Expensive as it is, the Norma stuff doesn't shoot very well in Italian rifles. The
bullets are a little undersized and accuracy is poor.
