Carcano question
I bought a brass Carcano clip yesterday and it came with 5 rounds of 6.5 ammo (The shinier round to the right is a hornady round I added to keep the others from falling out of the clip). One of the cartridges is significantly shorter than the others. I am assuming that the bullet was pushed slightly into the brass. The bullet is not loose. Is the shorter cartridge still OK to shoot? The 5 cartridges are a bit tarnished, but they do not appear to be military surplus, as they are lead tipped/soft points (I am assuming that Italian milsurp ammo is FMJ).

It turns out that I could not get the bolt to close on any of the the older looking cartridges. They fit in the clip and look just like hornady brass, but maybe they're another 6.5 cartridge(?). The hornadys shot well at 50 yards and the trigger is quite smooth!
