I have 2 old rifles, both 6.5 caliber. An Arisaka and a Carcano, both have oversize bores, .268 instead of the normal .264, and bullets are hard to find. Last week I happened on some .268 bullets so I ordered some. Got them this morning and was going to load some and try them. Measured them and they were .266, not .268 as advertised. I have been on the phone with the seller and the importer, neither of which believes me of course. I measured them with 2 different dial calipers and a vernier mike. So now I am going to have to send them back and wait for them to confirm what I already know. I have been resizing .277 (270 win) bullets to shoot in them, made my own sizer, guess that will have to continue.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
