A couple new pinfire related items


#1

First here are some pinfire shotshell reloadable primers + pins by SFM


I used kind of a new technique with some of these pictures. This is actually 26 pictures combined into one. Each picture has a different part in focus to get extreme detail on such a magnified image. This box is less than an inch wide! Look at a close up of the pins here in a higher resolution version: Larger

Then some of just the reloadable primers to use with the previous pictured pins. They are all different from each other. Notice the symbols between the words on the lid vary on each one as well as the font

A neat 12mm Rifle cartridge I guess? Any idea who made it and what the “T” means?

Hi Aaron,
Nice 12 mm shell.
I cannot help you with the ID of the case, but the T is some sort of yearcode.
They have been used in europe for many years.
Cannot tel you which year excactly but perhaps somebody else will.

Hi Aaron,
I checked some papers and it was used 1901/1902 or 1924/1925
For as far as I know they started to use the letters for three seperate times.
Starting early 1890’s and ending somewere around 1950

I hope this is of any help.

How did you merge the 26 photos to get such a clear image? Vic

Focus stacking to get a greater depth of field.

Here is a good article about it: http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/focus-stacking.htm

You would also need a camera that supports automatically bracketing the focus, or a focusing rail.

René,

Any particular company?

Hi Aaron,
Not for as far as I know.
It is French but that is something you probably knew.
I believe it has something to do with some kind of proof house.
But I could be wrong.
Other people might know better.

The mark you find on SFM ctges gives the year of manufacturing.
This was part of quality programm.

I don’t say that any ctge with such a mark is from SFM.
