This morning someone brought into the local hardware store coffee club a cartridge that is straight wall, the case length is 2 3/8 , overall is 2 5/8 including the bullet. It is center fire, on the back of the case is WRA co. 25-25, Can anyone tell us what era, and what type of firearm used this. I'm guessing it was some type of rifle. :confused:

It was a fairly popular black powder target cartridge at the end of the 1800s or so.

A number of Stevens single shot rifles were chambered for it.
