58 Gatling Rimfire Dimensions?


#1

I have read there are two 58 Gatling rimfire cartridges - a long and short.

Does anyone know the dimension of the cases for the long and short?

Thank you.

Thank you MDREA!

I appreciate you taking the time to post those dimensions.

I only had one reference which was Datig and only the short was listed in his book. I didn’t know there an intermediate.

The dimensions on mine are a 1.344 case length and 0.708 rim. Now I know I have the long version.
