15mm Pinfire

By Brian Clark

15 mm Pinfire cartridge
This is a 15mm Pinfire Revolver cartridge. The cartridge is by Fiocchi and the wonderful box below is by Leon Beaux & Company of Milan, Italy. Note that the caliber is a pasted on label to match the end-flap showing the 15mm cartridge. The endflap is the same on the top of the box.

I understand that there are two variations of the 15mm Pinfire, a revolver version and a carbine version. The carbine version uses a heavier and longer bullet. Does anyone have a picture that you could send us showing the two?
