Do you have a pic?
My Dad was recently gave a couple of these and I was quick to claim one for my own. What exactly have I got here?
Is it a small ball. or very pointed small bullet. and a copper case. if so they are German BB or CB caps.
No pics. It is pointed cb style
Some of that stuff is corrosive so if you shoot it beware.
My dad use to buy RWS BB caps to use around the house for varmits and other things that aggravated him. We had three English Setters in a kennel out behind the house. Dads prized possessions. A neighborhood cat would agravated the dogs and dad had shot it dozens of times with a BB gun. One day he decide to sting it good with a BB cap. It was a good 30yds to kennel. He stung the cat alright, it killed it deader than a door nail. Don't under estimate BB caps. The ones with pointed bullets weren't called CB caps. I think they were called bulleted caps. Both came in round tins. We shot a lot of pigeons in barns with both.

When I looked up the 6mm Flobert it also shown these as the same thing. So is this cartridge also called the 6mm Flobert? Or is it that these can be fired in the 6mm guns?
I believe BB's are 4.5mm.
