6.5mm Carcano - Manufacturer ID please?

Is anyone able to identify the manufacturer of this round? Does the 41 indicates the year of production?

I do not know who C A was, but have several of their rounds in my collection.

Yes, 41 is 1941. I read the C as being March but can not confirm this.

I read somewhere that “C A” can be Century Arms, but that would be much more modern.

Yeah… definitely not Century Arms in this context.

C.A is the designation for inspector Cavallo Alfredo at Pirotecnico Regio Esercito Capua e Bologna , Italy from 1939 to 1942.

Thank you Brian

The manufacturer is indicated by the letter ‘C’ and is Pirotecnico di Capua.

And the inspector’s name is rendered surname first. Jack
