.44 Colt ID


#1

I have this round listed as a .44 Colt Bennet primed circa 1873, but is it possible that it’s a .44 Remington ?
Thanks.


#2

Without measurements, I would guess this is the .44 Remington with Benet priming.


#3

I believe either designation is correct for this cartridge. The boxes are marked for ‘Colt’s & Remington’s Army Revolvers’


#4

Thanks for the answers.

The measurements are:

Rim dia .483/12.28mm
Case length 1.63/26.99mm
Bullet dia .449/11.42mm

Am I close with the date ?

They were produced as early as 1871 or 1872.
