    Just picked up a Italian Vetterli Rifle that was rechambered to 6.5 carcano for WWI.

    I know this is a substitute rifle for WWI that was orginally a black powder rifle.

    I read don't use full power factory loads in them and only use very light loads in them.

    However since this was a black powder rifle. Could you load a black powder or black powder substitute charge in a 6.5 Carcano case?

    There by there would be no chance of overloading the gun.

    I don't load myself. So i thought i would toss this out and see if it is feasible?
