I have a sporterized 6.5 Carcano I picked up at a flea market for $60.00
The rear leaf is gone but the fixed portion of the rear sight is there.
I loaded up some .265 139gr gc lead I had, using 8.0gr Unique
The rifle shot over a foot high at 50yds.
I know I could get a taller front sight any idea how much taller?
I think I have to raise the rear to get it to also shoot lower.
Didn't have any factory ammo with me but I do have some.
I am trying to ready this gun for my grandson as the lop is pretty short.
A guy at the range said cast bullets shoot higher.
I might try to go up to 10gr. of Unique, but I can't see how this will make
it shoot too much different.
