Coiled brass, paper patched, pegged bullet cartrigID needed


#1

I have a what I believe to be a coiled brass, paper patched, pegged bullet cartridge. I am completely out of my real here. Maybe a 360 ELEY?

Bullet diameter is .370" including paper patch
Mouth diameter is .385"
Case length is 1.480"
Base diameter is .425"
Rim diameter is .484"
Base height is .368"

Appears to be a .360 1.5" Purdey
Not near the books or collection but that’s all I can think of.

Thanks Pete, last time Don S. came over and looked at it his thoughts were possibly 360 ELEY but he was not certain. Way to short in my opinion of only pictures I have available. .360 1.5" Purdey, OK by me. Do you have any measurements or information suggesting time of coiled brass use.

Well now I have two possibles, just need a most likely. Ha-ha

Hi Joe
see Flemming’s book.
He doesn’t note a time, but as it only exists as a coiled case…

Pete,

I do not have Bill’s book. Do you or anyone else have an extra copy they are willing to sell?

“British Sporting Rifle Cartridges: A Summary of Case Types, Headstamps, Bullets, and Charge Variations”
