7.35mm Ammo - Where?

Hi all, I know this has been discussed before, but is there any source for cheaper 7.35mm ammo? Not interested in surplus, but looking for some that won't cost an arm and a leg.

I know it's spendy, but I've been looking and the cheapest I've found is about $22 a box.

Any leads would be appreciated!

Best regards!

Isn't Euro 7.35mm the same thing as English .32acp? Just guessing. Just guessing

32 ACP = 7.65 Browning

7.35 is Carcano rifle ammo.

I'm amazed you found any at all! Last time I saw 7.35X51 was about 25 years ago. Hornady quit making bullets for it in the 1970s, it was never a very plentiful item.

If you can get 7.35mm Italian at $22 a box, buy a bunch! As for not wanting surplus, that is good, because there ain't none. In fact, there was very little available because the Italians changed the caliber back before any large amount of ammo was produced.

Your best bet if you want to shoot a 7.35 Carcano very much is to start reloading. Factory ammo availability for this cartridge is "spotty" at best (Hornady did make a factory loading a few years ago, but it seems they've discontinued it).

Dies and the proper .300" bullets are, however, available from Hornady (Graf & Sons has them in stock) and dies may also be available from Lee.

While there is still some 7.35 Carcano surplus floating around out there, its not cheap and I wouldn't recommend shooting it. If its anything like the surplus 6.5 Carcano I've gotten ahold of before, it's hangfire/misfire prone garbage that is both dirty and corrosive. The only reason that I would buy surplus 6.5 or 7.35 Carcano ammo is if it came packed on the clips (the clips are reuseable and interchangeble between calibers).

9.3 x 74r RWS old cartridges and box

I hav a box of old RWS cartridges printed in german.

The brand stems from the Rheinisch-Westfälischen Sprengstoff-Fabriken, which passed into the ownership of Dynamit Nobel in 1931 and then under the control of RUAG Ammotec.

any thoughts on the best place to sell it? Peoples republic of EBAY would give a death sentence for trying.
