Smallest wildcat round

Hope this is of some interest.

The round in the middle is a .10 Eichelberger Wildcat round. The bullet weighs 7.2 grains and has a velocity of 2160 fps with a load of 1.8 grains of powder.

.22 RF on left and 5.56mm on right for comparison.


Reminds me of a long since obsolete round, the 5mm Velo Dog. Apparently used by French cyclists to shoot annoying muts. :D Could this wildcat be a modern replacement? :D


There were miniature rounds made for miniature shotguns. William Powell in Brum made some. That is some small round, I had an inert .22 Boz and had a rem .17 cf which are small enough.
