I found a fired cartidge case while on a jobsite. This is along the Bozeman Trail in Wyoming. It is a bottle neck cartidge of around .40 or .45 caliber, rimfire, with a large U stamped in the middle of the head. It has 2 firing pin marks directly across from each other, so was either out of a gun with a double rimfire firing pin, or misfired and attempted again.

It is 1 1/2 inches long, the head is 5/8 inch across, the larger portion of the case, below the bottle neck, is 1/2 inch in diameter.

Any help would be appreciated.

I dont know about rimfires much but I do remember hearing about this one. Smile

Hey Mike...Ya gotta picture??? The "U" sounds like Union Cartridge. A for runner of Remington. I think...

Hi

I was thinking about the Spencer rifle's bottleneck cartridge.

I couldn't remember enough about it, so I have to do some Internet surfing.

You can find some NICE PICTURES OF OLD CARTRIDGES HERE. Among them, in Pic #15, is the Spencer .56-46 rimfire.

See anything that looks familiar?

Keep us posted, Ok? I love this kind of stuff.

[edit] Oooh - our friends at leverguns.com come through for us again! Check here for some great info on the Spencer repeater, along with some crude but informative tech drawings of the cartridges.

[edit] Pictures! Pictures!! GIVE US PICTURES!!! [/edit]

Yup, the "U" is the headstamp of Union Metallic Cartridge Company, which Remington bought and absorbed.

Hey Mike, you managed to get some pics of that cartridge case yet? I am intrigued as to what it may be.

Cheers, Vince
