Quote from : Wikipedia : Mannlicher Carcano
6.5x52mm Carcano or 6.5x52mm Mannlicher-Carcano is an Italian military 6.77 mm (.266/67 cal.) rimless bottle-necked rifle cartridge, developed from 1889-1891 and used in the Carcano 1891 rifle and many of its successors.
A common synonym in US gun literature is "6.5mm Italian".
In US parlance, "Carcano" is frequently added to better distinguish it from the rimmed hunting cartridge 6.5x52mmR (US version: .25-35 Winchester).
Ballistically, its performance is very similar to that of the 6.5x54mm Mannlicher-Schönauer.

So it's possible? Wouldn't it have been better for Oswald to use something along the lines of a Sprinfield M19103A4? The CIA had those with silencers around the time of the JFK murder.
