Many years ago, when I did metal detecting, I found this fired case. I’ve never Id’d it, especially the primer. Can anyone help?
I think it’s a 44 Colt, copper cased.
.486 Rim Diameter. .466 case diameter ahead of rim.
Primer is set in a deeply dished cavity in the base. From the inside, there doesn’t seem to be flashole as such. just a large opening, through which can be seen what looks like a bar anvil.
Don’t ask me why the photo is blurred. It looks fine in my photo shop program. I took the photo with a flash so the shadows would emphasize the dished out area.
