    This is the previously mentioned rifle round. The case lenght is about the same length as my incorrectly ID'd "8mm Mauser" (thx SteveT!), but it has the the odd double shoulder with what looks like a .25 cal bullet. The head stamp has: St+, eej, 43 and 4 on it. Should be German, but what type. Semper Paratus
