Not sure what to think about this one, anyone seen anything like this ?
bullit is made out of lead.




the only thing I can think out that it can be used in a revolver, but I never have seen one like this.

GECO.  Did a little Googlin' and found these sites, but not that cartridge yet. Apparently there are a number of various cartridges. (For some reason the hyperlink insert doesn't work for me)


https://forum.cartridgecollectors.org/t/geco-i-30-carbine/1639/2 ;  This has a GECO decoder for the hieroglyphics.  Looks like 78 if I've got the angles oriented right.

Would love to see what that bullet looks like "pulled" from the casing, at first glance it reminds me of some type of buckshot round.

I thought of a .410 slug and a 7.62 Nagant.

Interesting round. I would hate to guess what this is supposed to fit.  Most certainly would not fit a carbine chamber correctly.  That is one heavily crimped round!

My thought is 7.62 Nagant revolver.  I used the carbine crimp die to swage the necks to fit the gas seal in the barrel throat. The bullet in that round is seated below the case mouth. It is very close to the dimensions of the carbine round.
