Unable to identify Head Stamp

Hi everyone,

Whilst digging a drainage trench in the garden I discovered the item below. (I’m not a collector but would like to know more !)

Any information greatly appreciated.

Many thanks !

It is a 9mm Flobert shotshell, and the headstamp is a GF which is for Giulio Fiocchi, an Italian company.

Hi Aaron, thanks for replying so quickly. Would this 9mm Flobert shotshell typically be used for hunting ?

Thanks

I think they typically would be used for close range shooting of varmints and pests. Maybe even birds that aren’t too far away.
