Old Rifle Cartridge in Utah

Postby Oldwest99 » Thu Jun 30, 2005 12:29 pm

I found this old Rifle Cartridge casing in Moab Utah while on my vacation out in the desert. I don't know much about guns or ammunition. But can anyone tell me how old it is or anything about it? :D It is 1 1/2 inches long the butte is 1/4 in diameter and the numbers 3 and 94 are stamped onto the bottom of the cartridge casing. If you give me an email address I can send a picture because I don't know how to post a picture.

Oldwest99, I'm far from an expert but I enjoy trying to identify old cartridges.
My e-mail is coyote5 at mts . net.

I love a challenge!!!

This was an answer from our son:
"Sounds like an old military cartridge. Found something similar in the .50
class in Death Valley when we lived out there."
