I hear that Sierra has discontinued the 160gr semi pointed. Hornady 160gr RN is on suspended production cycle currently. The Hornady is a double diameter type. Is the M/94 similar to the Hornady as in bore riding? Other poss options might be Lapua, Norma maybe Woodleigh? Then of course are the cast or swaged options assuming the bore is in suitable condition for their use. FMJ roundies likely a tough item to find today.

I was also wondering about resizing Carcano 160s. You would likely end up with a nose diameter near 0.260". Effectively this means a longer bearing surface. The Sierra 160 also had a longish bearing surface but semi pointed thus reducing this some. Certainly if one was resizing Carcano, loads would have to be worked up carefully keeping lookout for signs of excessive pressure as should always be done anyway.
