    Not at all! Please keep the thread going - I guess it's inevitable that the least of obscure cartridges will dry up eventually.

    Stuck on that one but I love that shoulder angle! What a graceful case.

    I don't think it's 7.62x54r but 8x56r may be a good shout. I was thinking 8x50r but the shoulder in the photo is so long and shallow I don't know.

    I think you're right with 8x56r.

    image.jpeg I would say 8x56r. Especially when you look at this photo. 30-06 on left. 8x56r on right.
