    This is a blank 12,7mm cartridge for the Remington rifle. It has probable been loaded with black powder from the beginning, and then changed to smokeles powder. The case mouth is sealed with wax. The wax is still soft to the touch after a hundred years. The case length is a bit shorter than the live round, 33mm compared to the full lenght cartridge of 42mm. I do not know why the case is shorter, but the probable explanations seems to be for easy recognizion, or even more probable, cost savings through reducing the amount of material used in the case.
    These cartridges are always without bottom stamps, but I do beleve they are produced in the Marieberg factory.

    Thanks to a private collector for lending this cartridge to me.
