41 LONG COLT, INSIDE LUBRICATED

The 41 Long Colt with inside lubricated bullet was launched around 1896 and replaced the old heeled-type bullet. The case was lengthened to accommodate the lubricated part of the bullet. The case is therefore longer that the old outside lubricated case. It was manufactured by most of the early US manufacturers as well as by Eley. (Erlmeier, Brandt Ref. 388)
