    It is dificult to tell what this is as we need a more exact measurement of both the case length and neck diameter. It looks to be about 51-52 millimetres long. One possibility is an Italian 6.5x52mm Carcano.

    Give the head a good clean with steel wool or similar and if the headstamp can be read I can identify it for you. Also where it was found would help.

    Also, the correct term is cartridge case, not "shell" please.

    Cheers

    Edit. Seeing your location it could also be a 6.5x54 Mannlicher as used by Greece. It is not Romanian as they used the rimmed Mannlicher round.

    That is really interesting.

    I was wrong, it is a British made .256 inch Arisaka (6.5x50SR) cartridge made for Russia for the Japanese rifles they used. It was made by Kynoch in Birmingham in 1916 and we supplied about 500 million rounds.

    I suppose not too surprising to find in Roumania.

    A nice find.
