Toledo 44-40 wcf question


#1

I have just picked up this interesting 44-40 round, the headstamp is F N T 1932 the bullet has a large flat nose and is either a FMJ or is tinned ?? and a large flat brass primer ,my question is that it has the characteristics of a military round, ie. bullet type and dated headstamp, did it have a military use ? Hogg on page 93 of his book states that this headstamp mark FNT was last used in 1932 could it be a commemorative round ? hope someone can answer these questions. thanks Randy

It is great how things happen … I was looking for one and the box to post a pic but I only found a round not the box, but also I found some cartrigides I have forgotten that I have in my collection … Moving problems …

Mine is PS (Pirotecnia Sevilla) 1945.
