I've been reloading for the 7.35 Carcano carbine for over 20 years shooting both Hornady .300 Dia. bullets and swaging down .308/310Dia. jacketed bullets though a Lee die to .300. In doing so I've used most ever kind of powder for IMR 7383 (very slow) to Ball C / 4895 ( OK but just so so) and to date found a few powders that worked but nothing the came close to replication of the original Italian loads till now.............

Recently I traded into a jug of Accurate 2520 and I have to say this stuff comes very close to the original loading with both 125/ 128 grain bullets. Shoots great, has the typical flash of the Italian loads, sounds just like it the original loading too. Even has the same point of aim.

I would suggest you try some. I think you would be very surprised at the results. My new go to powder for the 7.35..

You had me at “muzzle flash.” :ROFLMAO:

The AA2520 is a dream to meter, too. What kind of primers are you using?
