    "... If your grove diameter is larger than .264 you could experience blow-by from the breach due to low pressure when using the listed starting loads with the standard bullet size. Use shooting glasses when working out loads you consider the use of cast bullets sized to the exact grove diameter of your rifle.

    'generaly' any shotgun type powder in the 8 to 12 gn range will work (red dot, green dot, unique, 700x, ect.)

    Sir, The carcano bore is .268 not .264 or .267.  The bore on most of this rifles are not very good. also the rifling is a gain twist.  Not good for cast bullets. Hornady sells bullets for this fire arm, 128 gr. RNSP.
