I happened across a very unique bullet and am wondering if anyone recognizes it. The shell has no markings on it but it is a bit larger than a .22. Any idea what this is for?

I can’t believe the RSCSM didn’t catch on better. Shame too.

Looks like a round for some kind of power driver to me. I never saw one where the anchor was preloaded into a cartridge.

Most use a blank cartridge to drive the anchor.

Drives in then snaps off... Hmm. I could buy that. Maybe

It's likely worth three times what it was 1.5 years.
