38 Long Rim-Fire
The 38 long and short rimfire cartridges were introduced near the end or shortly after
the Civil War in 1865, due to the demand for smaller caliber rifles and revolvers.
Both the 38 short and long cartridges were very poplar until the advent of centerfire
cartridges toward the end of the 1800's.
Now long obsolete since the early 1920s, over 90 odd years ago....

Below please find 6 versions of the 38 short rimfire cartridges.
Due to the age of these cartridges, they will have some spots on the cases and some lead
oxide on on the projectiles. This normally cleans up for display with a little paint thinner.
These cartridges may fire well in your firearm; however, we sell these cartridges for
display only and cannot guarentee they will fire in your firearm.

By United States Cartridge Company,

Very early, no head stamp, maybe half a dozen
different makers?
The Phoenix Metallic Cartridge
Company was incorporated in
SouthCoventry CT. in 1874 by
JosephMerwin and Milan &
Henry Hulbert.
   They produced Rimfire
Cartridges until app. 1891, and
it is estimated the Raised "P"
was used from1878to 1891,
when the company closed in
July of that  year.
This 38 Long Rimfire with
Raised "P" is from that period
of time.
Please note: The Peters Cartridge
Company used an impressed
"P" on there headstamp, so this
is indeed a Phoenix Cartridge.
