My homemade 8mm Kropatschek cartridge

Greetings to all, this is my first post. I am attaching a picture of the cartridge, formed from a .348 Winchester case, necking down in a 8mm Lebel die. I put a bevel on the base with my lathe. Used a Lee 205 cast bullet and 70 grains of pyrodex to complete.

Here is the case after firing…

Good one, but nothing new.
AVB Tech Services has been making Kropatschek cases (8×56R smokeless spec) since the 1990s…bevelled rim too, and annealed.
If one really requires an 8x60R (BP) case for M1885 Guedes, and M1886 Krop., we can do them as well…50-90 Sharps straight.
