I have a 6.35x48 Winchester with an odd bullet profile. I’m wondering if it is a legitimate round, or if I’ve perhaps misidentified it. It is the one on the far left in the photos (W C C 5 8). As you can see, it doesn’t have the short, conical projectile that all of the other cartridges in the series have, nor does it have the same crimp as all of the other 6.35x48 cartridges.

In the photo the case looks a bit longer than the other 6.35x48 rounds, but I think that is just because it is not crimped.

Can anyone provide more information about this round? Thanks in advance!
