    Hello Doc
    Seems that your the one that would know so if you could help me, I have 2 small cannon shells (about 6.5" long) that were made into lamps. I decided to clean them and took the things apart, to my surprise there was a German crown M headstamp with the inscription "PATRONENFABRIK KARLSRHUE 43". Their about 1.5" diameter. Any Ideas?

    Doc Av,

    I've read your post about 11x52R Dutch Beaumont reloading issues. Could you please elaborate on Lebel brass sleeving? Also, what dies do you use for reloading of this cartridge? And another question - how to tell for sure that what i have is in fact 11x52R and not 11x50R. The rifle is 1875 Beaumont that was modified to take Vitali magazine - i've slugged the bore and it comes to .452. Please advice.



    P.S. If you have a sample brass case or even a round i'd be happy to buy it from you.
  7. Doc Av,

    Here's a link to the 'carbinized' Carcano long rifle. I'll be very interested in your assessment. I thought it odd the importer left the bayonet lug on the rifle. SW

    I see you are popular! I saw your post about having a couple of original Enfield rifle crates from Canada. I was wondering if they were from Long Branch or Savage? I was also wondering if you could send me some photos of any markings on the box. I have been looking for a Savage rifle crate and want to know what kind of markings to look for. Thanks for your time
