I have two shot shells that are smaller than 410s also they are about 3/8" in dia. 1 11/16" long. both have a central fire primer like a regular shot shell. One has bird shot the other a round lead ball. One is green paper the other red paper. What are these?

Without a photo I'd bet on 9mm. They were made in rimfire and centerfire and I've seen a tiny double rifle with one rifled and one smooth bore to shoot them. It was a Belgian made rimfire.

In my cartridge collection, I have a very small shotgun shell (6 m/m shot). It's 1" long, blue (paper) with a brass head. Looks like a mini .410-3" shell. My largest is a 2 gauge PUNT. Your shell might be this or a 9 m/m, but the one I have is all metal (Nickle plated).

I have .320 centerfire and .360 centerfire Eley shells, both with shot and lead balls. I also have 9mm shotshells, both rimfire and centerfire.
