HI All again :-)

I got such a case, probably incomplete. Head dia = 0.601, 1.237 long. Brass case. No primer. Deep hole under Berdan primer - (0,169). Inner insert with a fire hole. Found in the River Thames in London. HS = ABRAHAM & BAYLISS BIRMINGHAM PATENT. I found a description of Abraham & Bayliss’s patent, but nothing more. Caliber? , Length? I appreciate every information
This is the last question :-)

Thanks

Rufus

Sorry, my fault I misunderstood your question.

Measure the head (not the rim) that will give you the gauge.
If that is what you mean.

Thanks !!
