Virtual Cartridge Library - 6mm USN


#1

I have been collecting factory drawings of cartridges for some time now, and I figured I’d turn them into a 3D library by rendering the cartridges in CAD. While I’ve rendered many cartridges in the past, here’s the first one I’ve done for the library - a 6mm USN case, based on this drawing (supplied to me by forum member uscartco):

Some things, like the case web dimensions, had to be extrapolated from what I already knew, but the result should be very true to life.

Here’s a 5.56 NATO case I did for my own research purposes months ago, based on the below drawing:

The observant will note that the cases do not have headstamps. I am still working on that!
