I don’t know anything for sure about the cartridge for this 6mm repeating pistol, but proportionately, in the drawing, it looks like the 6mm Merveilleux, which was also made for a repeating pistol. E&B 21. There is no certainly that the Brun Latridge had a cartridge specifically designed for only it in the little I have seen on this pistol.

From where is the information that it was made in 8mm as well. Have not seen that before, or in what you posted?

I have the answers now :

What they call 6 mm is in fact what we call 5 mm Brun Latrige
And the 8 mm is the 8 mm Mitrailleuse.
