Ian, great pictures, thanks a lot for sharing. The spiral, shortened envelope, and copper-coated loadings are rare, and also the bullet with a screw-secured base. Very interesting.
[quote]Quoting Tony Edwards from his comments in a thread on BOCN concerning the 1 inch Nordenfelt ( bocn.co.uk/vbforum/threads/8 … Nordenfelt? )
“…the 1 inch Aiming Rifle which used the same case as the Nordenfelt but had a lead projectile and was usually electrically fired in Naval service. The army used both electrically fired (coast guns) and percussion fired versions.”[/quote]
There is also a rare and undocumented Mark VE loading that exist with both percussion or electric primer.
