    No measurements? Might be an Ak47 blank but just a guess.

    Yes measurements are definitely required.

    So you basically have a 50mm casing with an extremely long bottle neck. Location of your find? East of Germany? West of Germany?

    Yes. Certain rounds were used by different countries and not by others. That helps narrow it down.

    I am taking a guess now by the length of the casing, being rimless, and where you found it.. 6.5x52mm italian carcano. Here are a couple of pics before 75 years of water reached them..

    I would say clean it the best you can and see if the stamps on the bottom match any of the above.

    And I'm counting on deformity because of long term water exposure. I do not believe measuring diameter would be accurate.
