Z5282 .45-70-500 Trapdoor Springfield Cartridge
Description: Representative 1888 Pattern cartridge measuring .45 caliber, with 70 grains of powder and a 500 grain bullet. These cartridges were made of brass which was then tinned inside and out. This helped reduce the reaction between the powder and brass which lead to a greater shelf life. This example is externally primed and was manufactured at the Frankford Arsenal in 1892. This one still retains quite a bit of tin but there are some issue around the rim.
Headstamp: Impressed "F / 1 / 92"
