The 6mm Longue (Long) is a very early rim-fire cartridge
developed in Europe around the late 1880s.
Due to the lack of knowledge of drawn brass cartridge
production in the era, the cases were a 2 piece production.
The base was brass which enclosed the rim-fire primer
and it appears the copper sleeve was inserted and
crimped inside the base to complete the case.
Adding the powder and projectile completed the cartridge.
