    Fact: short 7x57 cases in the Boer war. More than one short length known. No further facts. Ammunition in the Boer republics were imported before the war started, as Britishicon blockade prevented any resupply even through friendly ports. Speculation of the source of the short cases has led nowhere.

    Any facts about the company making that ammunition would be highly appreciated.

    That would cause some confusion to amature archaeologists when they find cases and try to figure out what they were...

    There has been some speculation and research done some years ago, inconclusive, that is why manufacturer facts would help a lot in starting up again.
