A single inert cartridge comprising of a fired case in .44 Winchester Center Fire (or 44-40) which has been refitted with a lead flattened round nose head. The lead heads are more authentic to period. The flattened nose enables more to fit into a magazine tube of a lever action rifle. This was the first centre fire cartridge developed by Winchester in 1873 in conjunction with its 1873 rifle, otherwise known as the 'gun that won the West'. The cartridge eventually was adopted by Colt in its Frontier Six Shooter revolver, and the cartridge became ubiquitous as both rifles and pistols were available for this calibre. Heads are correctly fitted with a press and not hammered in place, so the round has a more authentic appearance over rounds where the heads have been inserted too deeply. Case necks have been crimped to hold the bullet head in place. Perfect for film, display, diorama or to add authenticity to a revolver or 1873 Wild West display. Can also be worn as fashion accessory. Cases are brass. Please note that all rounds have no propellant or live primers. This is a deactivated .44-40 Winchester bullet. To restore a shiny finish, rub the cartridge with toothpaste or a commercial cleaner. Please note that price is for ONE round only. NB: All inert ammunition travelling OUTSIDE mainland UK must be shipped by international courier (eg TNT, DHL). Extras available for this dummy round: An new and unindented brass cup to fit into the primer pocket to give the appearance of a new, unfired round: Large Dummy Primer Removal of the deactivated, inert primer from the round, leaving a hole or holes in the base that can be inspected to prove the round is inert and free from explosives: Depriming of Round
