Unknown cartridge...need ID/info

Here is a cartridge case (in fact…two…but almost identic…‘except’ the headstamp maybe…) that…I didn’t see until now…maybe for hunting (something like 9.3x72 Sauer…?!?)…could it be ‘related’ to WW2 ?

Any INFO (ID)…?

Thank you !

Interesting item. It looks like a vent tube or igniter cartridge for bag charges and CF may indicate French manufacture?? I have not seen one of these but another possibility is a primer that was removed from an artillery case? I await the expert opinions.

I have a similar, but shorter one (without headstamps). I don’t know what is that either.

Both examples are French Model 1897 primer tubes for artillery cases of 47, 65, 75, 150, 155, and 240 mm. Top example is a pre-1915 model (68 mm long) and bottom example is the variant adopted in 1915 (50 mm long).

Fede

Thank you very much.

Mine one(s)…I thought is a…405 Winchester cartridge case…but…that primer…?!? ;-)
