Today I receive some 7 mm Lefaucheux pinfire cartridges. When I check them I was surprised that all has the different length
I am not familiar with Pinfire cartridges and decided to ask collegues who collect this type of ammo:
- Why cartridges on the pictures has a different length, i.e. does it means something or it’s only different manufacturers standards?
- Is it possible to identify the manufacturer of each cartridge?
- Is it possible to identify the period when cartridges where made?
May be some data can help:
Overall length - 22,32 mm
Case length - 15,60 mm
Base diameter - 7,86 mm
Overall length - 21,68 mm
Case length - 15,0 mm
Base diameter - 7,85 mm
Overall length - 21,32 mm
Case length - 14,0 mm
Base diameter - 8,02 mm
