12.7 X 44R F.H.

This was probably the first conversion of the 12x44R Remington M71 rimfire cartridge. It resembles the U.S. 50-70 Government cartridge, but has a smaller base and rim diameter. It was introduced circa 1881 and continued in production until about 1920. The cartridge has a thick beveled rim.

The sample A. ANDRESEN * TROMSØ* is thought to have been produced by Remington.
