In my opinion this cartridge is a non existent case type made from a cut-down 8.15 x 46 R.

Fede, thanks for the reply,
i have about 12 cartridges i will put on the forum to id, most of wich i also think are ‘modefied’.
They came included to a large batch i bought from a german collector.

My ‘guess’ of being it a cattle killer cartridge is the heavy weight.
