.380 revolver CF and 7.5 x 34 R Walking stick


#1

What is it? It is a blank with a white wad.


#2

I have a similar cartridge. Mine is a shot load that I bought with a collection of flobert cartridges. I do not know if it is similar to the flobert shot cartridges or not.

I have no idea what a the 753 signifies on mine.


#3

I shook mine hard and I could hear BB’s clicking too. Mine has a well defined shoulder.

Hi,

The first is a shot .380 revolver CF.

The second is a 7.5 x 34 R Walking stick.

Both are french SFM made.

Monsieur Chassepot,
Do you mean “.380 revolver RF” since it is a rim-fire cartridge?


#7

sksvlad,

Both cartridges are INSIDE-PRIMED CENTER FIRE CARTRIDGE (the original french patent dated 1855).

Vlad,
are you sure that the 380 is a blank? My sample is loaded with shot, and the elongated case would suggest that


#9

You are correct, I shook mine hard and could hear the BB’s. It is well packed.
