Looked it up on Municion.org, but failed to find out what kind of revolver it was fired in? Did anybody else besides RWS make that cartridge? i’ll put up a picture tomorrow.

The 9mm Sharps was a longer flobert cartridge. The guns that shot it could also shoot regular shorter flobert cartridges, but not necessarily vice-versa. The cartridge was popular for hunting rabbits.

Here is a picture of one of mine.

It was made also made in a shot variety which I also have, but here is a picture from some other site:

And here is a label for the shot cartridge:

The 350 Sharps (shot loading variations) were made in two lengths : 45 mm and 54 mm.

Another source tells me that Sharps made a version of their 4-barrel pocket pistol in this caliber. That must be the reason behind the name .350 Sharps.
