The picture of the 12 mm Remington cartridge shows the first adopted bullet that was replaced in 1871 by a bullet that weighed 360 grains, and that had a shallower hollow base. This bullethad superior accuracy compared to the old bullet.

The original diameter of the military bullets were 12,62 mm.

Below is my drawing of the Model 1871 bullet.
