    From the headstamps in the top picture the left one appears to be a FN 7.65x53 Mauser case and the other one is a 7.5x54 French case...........Pete.

    Thanks
    Just measured them.
    Both are 54 in length but also 7.92 in diameter.
    That's what got me wondering.

    Hi,the case would have to expand on firing to release the bullet that`s why it is now larger....Pete.
