...yes but consider that the accuracy of the Prvi rounds is awful ... still a good source for brass. I use them to fire the first couple rounds to warm up the barrel, and save the better reloads for shooting for accuracy.

I have to agree with DMala. Compared to _anything_ I have fired, the Prvi-Partizan ammo is good only for close range defense (meaning 25 yards and under) and as a source for excellent brass. Their ammo suffers from under-sized bullets (.264" vs .268") and the wrong weight and size. The 6.5 Carcano was rifled to stabilize a 162 gr RN bullet -- not a 140 gr spitzer. I don't get 'groups' when I fire Prvi-Partizan even at 25 yards -- I get a shotgun-like 'pattern'. Typical 'pattern' at 25 yards is a full 8" across!
