    Wow, old thread. Mr. Bullbarrel, it's a .510" Winchester Short Magnum wildcat, not a 50-70. 505gr pure lead .500" diameter patched up to .512". Here's the same case with a 700gr tumble-lubed projectile: https://s32.postimg.cc/bmchix1vp/700gr_WSM.jpg

    It'd be similar to a shortened .50 Razorback wildcat based of the Remington Ultramag case intended for a long action.
