Nice Russian,I like the mine to.
Nice items Darrol,, ref the cartridge not a confirmation just an idea, possibly used as a lamp stand ,fixed to a base using the original primer hole and electrics run in through the second with the cut slit to run the wire through,before teaming it up with a projectile
Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by military EOD personnel .

hi spotter .the hole is theaded so i dont think it was a bit of someones lamp project plus the groove is precisely cut and would only be wide enough for a one core cable or speaker wire.i think it looks official.but why
The groove reminds me of the groove in a pinfire calibre reducer, (eg 12 bore to 12mm) but you wouldn't put a pinfire case (blank?) in a threaded hole.
For a fuse with an external electrical wire?
A locating groove so that the offset primer(?) is aligned correctly?
Simply a groove put there to confuse future collectors?
hi.well its doing a good job so far if it isdid any other ordnance have a secondery primer or a electricaly fired conversion?
bit of a puzzeler.
