What are these??

I found a bag with a bunch of ammo in it....They are both RIMFIRE rounds pictured...Anybody know what they are?...The round on the left is a common 22 long rifle catridge that I put there for comparison..The second round appears to be around 32 caliber, while the round on the right seems to be 38 caliber...Any ideas ?

Might be a 32 long or extra long. The 38 is probably a 38 short. Both might be black power, but we're also loaded in smokeless. Mid 1800 to mid 1900 cartridge.

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,

Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.

Re: What are these??

they appear to be rimfire. If they don't have a primer in the center they are. The cases appear copper or is that just patina.

Re: What are these??

Might as well mention they are worth $ to a collector.

Re: What are these??

Is the one on the right big enough to be a .41 rimfire? My grandfather had one in an old pumpgun Iremember from about 50 years ago?

Re: What are these??

I don't think so...The middle one is below 38 caliber for sure..Looks like 32.

Ken, Google up Collector Ammo - give you some idea. I have a bunch of old stuff I need to move along too. Gunbroker, Guns International, etc. have listings for such.

Re: What are these??

Ken, They are worth a couple of bucks. Maybe $1 or 2 each according to the Headstamp. Remington "U" is very common and a company like Robin Hood would be worth a lot more due too rarity. Hard to sell if they have to be shipped. They have to go by ground only. The big money in collector shell are full boxes and the box adds more than the cartridges. When you take them to a gun show it is hard to find a retail collector of shells and the dealers would already have commons. But they are very COOL ! You just have to find a nut like me that lives close by. lol
Drop them on the table at the gun club.
