Looks like a .41 Swiss Vetterli to me. Out of my field though,
so could be wrong.

John Moss

Its a 10.4mm Scharfe Gewher Patrone 71/78 manufactured by the Swiss company Thun.
Also known, as John says, as a .41" Swiss Vetterli.

Just saying: of course rimfire. The Swiss cross in the middle of the casebase is not something of a primer.

European name : 10.4x38R VETTERLI SWISS MOD.1866-67 RF
