    I tend to collect the oddball things, cartridges included. So anytime I see a rare one pop up, I need to grab it...regardless of its design of history. I also think its fun to have a little guessing game now and then. Mods, I hope this is kosher.

    Lets see who gets it first. for comparison, a 375 H&H is on the left...but what is on the right?

    Looks like a 577 Tyrannosaur to me, could also be a 460 Weatherby but can't tell without measuring the belt with a caliper.

    Update: Zoomed in picture. No Belt. Not a 460 Weatherby. So will hold pat with 577 TRex

    That kinda sucks. I was hoping to get schooled a bit. @TTundra I'll offer one up in replacement to keep your challenge going?

    The top is a 7x57 (with a smashed partition pushed in)

    The bottom is an 8 bore loaded shotgun shell.

    What's the one in the middle?

    One good pick deserves another, @TTundra

    Very nicely done! Found that one on the ground in Africa where it had been resting since an Anglo shot it at a Zulu in the 1880s.

    I always struggled with the metric system. I'll sit back and watch the pros work it out.

    I don't know any cartridges measured in furlongs, fathoms or long yards. :)

    Looking forward to better cartridge geeks than me to step forward and seize their prize in the annals of cartridge lore!

    Step forward. Be counted!

    Here is a hint. The rifle it was chambered in was not chambered in any other round besides this one. That should do it.
