Ammunition for the Austrian Army revolver Gasser M1870, identical to ammunition for carabiner Werndl M1867, but with half the power. Due to frequent exchanges of carbine ammunition for revolver (often with tragic consequences) in 1882 was removed from service and replaced with ammunition 11.2 mm Gasser (same but with shorter cartridge). The M1870 revolvers were sold to Montenegro in 1882 (that is why the revolver is called "Montenegrin" - in Montenegro, due to constant conflicts with the Turks, every adult citizen was obliged to walk armed with a revolver).
The cartridges of Austrian-made ammunition were tombac, the cartridges of Montenegrin production were brass. In both cases, the bullet was lead.
