Interesting ctges box

J-P: That is an interesting box! What caliber does “Cartouche Federale” actually represent? That sounds almost like a Swiss designation.

hi john
on the box it is written (just between the two parts Martini)
and they say cartouche annulaire (rim fire)

therefore I think it is the 41 Swiss RF


Is Martini on the label referring to the Martini rifle??

Hi JP,

I have the same full boxl.

Here is a cartridge from this box :

and the rifle that used it :


Thanks, Chassepot. Great headstamp, and I see the rifle does use a Martini action.
