need help with an unknown to me cartridge.
      #345147 - 17/09/20 02:28 PM

I recently bought a cape gun. Made in Belgium. Made a sulfur cast of the chamber. The dimensions follow in inches:
length = 1.41 35.8mm
cal = .43
neck of cartridge = .457
base of cartridge = .475
rim diameter = .535
rim thickness = .073

I went through the Manual for cartridge conversions but found nothing really close to the measurements. Any and all help is appreciated.

Seems like itís between the Austrian 11.15x36R Werndl cartridge and a 450 No.1 Rifle cartridge (sometimes called the 450 Kangaroo Rifle cartridge.

The 450 #1 carbine and the 450 Kangaroo are the closest that I have found. Thank you Huvius for your help.

Mauser 1871 11.15x37mmR has been tossed up. I can't find any case dimensions for it. Anyone know them?

Caspar - Only from the Handloaders manual(you have looked?) and Hoyem V 2





I hope this helps

There would be appreciable variation at that time, the more common cartridges were usual in Cape Guns but nothing can be taken for granted

Good luck

That's the only photo or drawing that I've seen. Not the round since it's necked. Mine is straight. Thanks.
