(25 customer reviews)


Set of six 6.5×52 Carcano dummy rounds / snap caps / fake bullets.

Cartridge Options Explained

With this option steel BB’s (ball bearings) are added to the cartridges. This makes them rattle when shaken, aiding in identification as inert, snap caps.

Cartridges all patina darkened to aid in identification.


Set of six 6.5×52 Carcano (6.5mm Carcano) dummy rounds / snap caps / fake bullets.   Designed for the Italian 1891 and 91/38 Carcano’s used during WWI and WWII.

Great for safely function checking, as an addition to your re-enactment kit, or display with your unique piece of military history.

Available with spent primers remaining, empty primer pockets, holes drilled in the cases, or rubber inserts added to the primer pockets. Properly sized, seated, and crimped.

Thanks for looking!

Single round sled available here.

    I use them to shape homemade pasta

  2. Eric W. (verified owner)

    They actually look real I just wanted a rubber insert so I went with that, but without It I would think they were real

  3. Kevin R. (verified owner)

    this was a second order, some of the first ordered, didn’t like a Carcano with a bad bolt, they help diagnose and fix the issue, expecting these will “live” longer -PS the single round sled/insert is wonderful when trouble shooting.

    Service and shipping was super fast, product is as described. Good experience for getting a niche product.

    Speedy delivery time, exactly what I wanted. Drilled holes were clean and rubber inserts have taken a number of fires and have held up well.

    I purchased the 6.5×52 Carcano dummy rounds with the rubber inserts. These are very well constructed using PPU brass and have not had any issues loading or extracting the rounds in a M91/38.

    Nice display rounds

    Who knew they make for perfect cat toys. I chose the bb installation option, to help tell them apart from the live rounds I have. Though, in practice, my cats love the little rattling noise the bb’s in them make. Tie them to a string and they can’t help themselves but to bat them around. I am rather happy with my investment, despite them being used for a completely different purpose than initially.
