I recently acquired an example of this cartridge. It is not in the best condition, but for what it cost I’m glad to have found it.
As I understand it, not much is known about why this cartridge was made or what weapon it was for. Where did the “Colt-Kynoch” name originate from?
My example has no headstamp, but I am told some can be found marked with a “T”. I have heard it said that these were possibly made by Thun in Switzerland. Is there any hard evidence of this?
If anyone has an example with the “T” headstamp, I would like to see a photo.
Thanks for any info.
