450 LONG C.F.

450 LONG C.F. (50/64″ CASE)

This was one of the 450 Long C.F calibers listed in the late 19th to early 20th Century. These cartridges were listed in a variety of case lengths and called 450 Long, mainly in order to differentiate them from the 450 Short CF Revolver. These were listed by many European as well as British manufacturers and came from a time where there was very little standardisation between various manufacturers. These 450 Long cartridges vary in length from .75 to 1.13 inches. (Erlmeier, Brandt Ref. 444)
