Could someone help me ID this cartridge?
I got a handful of these with an old '03 Springfield
I got from a family friend. I haven't been able
to identify it.
Any help is appreciated.

Looks like maybe a 30-03, the original round chambered in the 1903 Springfield, and superceded by the 30-06 when the spitzer type bullet was used.

I'm going to go with the 6.5x53, or anything similar.

It looks kind of like a 30-40 Krag. Whats the bullet diameter?

Looks like maybe a 30-03,The 30-03 was a rimless case just about identical to the 30-06 except with a 1/10" longer neck.

And Fabrique Nationale (FN) never made any of them.

Oops, should have enlarged it before I typed. I guess I need newer glasses, cuz I didn't see the rim.
