Bore looks like 8mm.
Chamber is longer than .303 Brit and diameter is larger than .303 Brit.
8mm Mauser is too long
54R is too fat.
Does anyone have any idea?
8x56R maybe 🤷‍♂️

Yep...agree it might be 8x56R cartridge. It's also a rare cartridge,so finding one may be a bit of a problem...just to see if it chambers.

IIRC Italy had the Vickers chambered in 8x56r and I will look for a round for you Mike. Check with Redroth as I don't recall if he said he found a round for checking the chambers on his Breda 37 barrels, he may have one.

Brownells has a very easy to use low temp chamber casting material. I've used it a number of times to locate dings in chambers and also to identify the caliber of a barrel. FWIW
