    Nordenfelt ?

    Wouldn't the Nordenfelt have three heavy indents or crimps to match the crimp groove near the base of the projectile, Aiming cases seem to be push fits, with no indents - If I recall correctly.

    1 inch cases

    Aiming rifles used Nordenfeldt cases but Nordenfelt cases are always percussion cap, aiming can be percusion or electric of various formats. Some aiming have a groove around the case to prevent the bullet pushing down and three indents. The very best book on these is British Small Arms Ammunition 1864-1938 by P.Labbett which has a section that covers both types of round.
