    They are shotshells from CBC in Brazil. Your's happen to be Berdan primed. They also made them Boxer primed. Stands for Companhia Brasileira de Cartuchos Sao Paulo, Brazil.

    These are great answers to my questions!
    However, I don't have any 28 Gauge or 32 Gauge shotguns. I don't even know anyone that does!
    Buying a shotgun to fit will never happen.
    Now what?
    Suggestions?

    Good candidate for a 209 conversion.
    When dealing with islam one should always ask themselves: "What would Leonidas do?"

    No a 32 is a 32 and a 36 is a 410

    Our 32 and 24 gauge guns are over/unders made by Fausti
    The 28 is either a Krieghoff 32, Win 101, Superposed, Rem 1100 or others

    The nominal bore of a .410 shotgun is.410 inch. Which is why it is properly called the .410 bore instead of the .410 gauge. In Europe it is sometimes called the 12mm, which is an inaccurate designation as a .410 bore has an actual diameter of approximately 10.4mm by metric measure. If the .410 had been named in the traditional fashion, by the number of lead balls .41 inch in diameter needed to make one pound, it would be about a 67-68 gauge. Many years ago it was also called the 36 gauge, and I have seen a picture of an old box of Remington shells marked "(36 GA.) .410-2 1/2 IN. (12 MM)." However, the "36 Gauge" designation was very inaccurate, as a true 36 gauge gun would actually have a .506 inch bore diameter.
