Default What is this ammo?

I found a pill bottle full of these in a M19 ammo can full of ammo that I got for helping some folks clean out their house after a death in the family. They're the shortest .22 I've ever seen, no more then .25" and the pointiest. There is an acorn on the bottom. Anyone?

I think it is a "CB cap". no powder - powered by the primer only.
(CB stands for conical bullet). very quiet in a 22. with a 20gr bullet
and short range it has limited use. I have shot some and have heard
louder pellet rifles.

So it's safe for basically anything that would take a short?

I am just going to throw something out there. I have a Flobart parlor rifle. It requires bullets that look really similar. Mine is somewhere around a 32cal. rimfire. Maybe those bullets are for something like that.http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f18/what-type-rifle-29004/

I just know that the flobart come in different calibers.
In my search I found them in .22 to .32 calibers also several different MM.

Yeah, they'll work in the Flobert style guns and any gun that's too old to fire modern shorts.

If you come across any 32 rimfire, let me know. I could always use another box but at $50/50 it gets pricey fast.

Yep- as the man said- Dynamit Nobel CB caps- no powder, primer only. I am holding a 100 rd tin of the SMALLER version- the BB cap- round ball, no powder. From a rifle, quieter than an air rifle. Limited power. But an old phone book makes a good backstop for indoor target shooting.
