I found an unuasual round in a box of my late grandfathers stuff a while back. It looks to be fairly old.

Its a rimmed cartrige, and slightly larger in diameter than a 30-30, but about the same length. the bullet might be a little larger than a 30-30's too. its difficult to tell. Its FMJ, and the only marking is a "48" on the bottom of the case.

Do any of you know what this is? If i can, I'll get a picture of it somtime in the near future.
