The case between a 357 magnum and a standard 38 Special. The case bears standard S&B hds and is longer than 38 special.

C3SRL on the head is the mark of an italian company that loads ammunition using components made by other factories

Maybe for a non-lethal load of rubber bullet, or tear gas to be fired from a “non-gun” like a tear gas gun? Sometimes they use slight variations of known cases so that similar real cartridges can’t be chambered in them.

Also with the word “fresatura” he means the small groove at the base resulting form the drawning process

I have tought that it was for a some special loading like shot or non lethal balls too
