Here is the original cartridge and bullet:


The bullet you have posted above is a civilian variation.

Regarding the cartridge designation, the official Norwegian designation was '12 mm Remington' from 1879 after the metric system was adopted. Original rifles vary, and the designation is nominal.

I write more about the 12 mm rifles and calibre in my book From Musket to Metallic Cartridge, available from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Musket-Metallic-Cartridge-Oyvind-Flatnes/dp/1847975933/
