    Mike!
    before molding we heated the end of barrels and the chamber too. So I think? that we didn't have solidification contraction. there are real sizes( it's my opinion).
    Tomorrow , i'll ask y ou and other about interesting " cigaret" with pulver inside, from another cartridge....

    Sorry, gentlemen!
    You are discussing about bullet cartridge, and what is your opinion about the only gun and it's engraving??
    I think, not every month you have seen such guns......

    Not every month, but from time to time......
    The gun obviously has seen very hard times. The condition is very worn now, but restorable. The engraving is typical 19th century Meffert with Acanthus leaves and nice animal scenes. You need a really good gunsmith to make the right hammer and screw, make and engrave a correct buttplate screw, remove the terrible monogram, repair the split near the stock's toe, clean and refinish(at least the wood) the thing.

    in my mind, Germany people are so pedantiс , that they couldn't proof incorrect size of bullet at watertable of barrels?!
    according to the digits 67/49 it must be 10,45 mm caliber, but in practice it is 11,15 mm.
    Where is truth?

    67/49 means a diameter in between gauge number 67,49 = 10.41 mm = .410" and gauge number 62,78 = 10.67 mm = .420" . This is neither the groove nor the bullet diameter, but was measured at the proofhouse using cylindrical plug gages. It is the smallest diameter of the barrel between the lands of the rifling. You have to add two times the depth of the rifling grooves to get close to the bullet diameter. On old rifles there may have been some wear of the rifling lands. So an old barrel now may accept a larger cylindrical plug now.

    MARAT,
    In a posting, above, you said you would ask about : interesting "cigarette" with pulver inside, from another cartridge.... I haven't seen this question yet, but I think you might be asking about pre-measured/weighed packets of powder, wrapped in paper(nitrated?); for load/reloading ammunition. These are known as "Einzelladungen" in German and were widely used for loading 8.15x46R ammunition for target rifles( sometimes during a match, using the same case). Americans sometimes confuse "einzelladungen"(singleloading) for "einzellader"(singleloader), which means a single shot.

    MARAT,
    Axel may correct or add to what I think, but it seems this is :0.8 grams of a smokeless TROISDORFER( a brand name) Target Powder. Of course, other types and/or weights of powder would have also been available.
