A turned brass case as made on a lathe, from a solid piece of brass or one made by drawing the brass cup through a series of punches. If turned you should be able to see the tool marks going around the body and on the head.

It is a .443 Egyptian & the company is as I stated. The .433 comes from the American conversion / name for the Egyptian Remington metric cartridge.

It is a drawn case. I found the 443 Egyptian under 11mm Egyptian Remington. Thanks for the help
