I have a cartridge that I labeled many years ago as ".44-60 Peabody “Creedmoor”. I have NO idea where I got that ID, but I certainly did not just dream it up. I have spent all afternoon looking for a reference to back up my ID, but have not found one. Anybody else ever seen or heard of this cartridge.?
It appears to be the same as a .44-60 Sharps, Necked. It is unheadstamped, but has a oval or rounded base instead of the more flat UMC style base. It is round nosed paper patched. Case length is 1.913. Bullet (over the paper patch is 0.446. Rim is 0.616 (compared to 0.621 for a .44-60 Sharps, Necked in my collection).
