Z5317 Full Box of .50-70 Govt. Cartridges (Frankford Arsenal)Description: Decent correct and full box of .50-70 Govt. cartridges manufactured at the Frankford Arsenal in December of 1872. The pasteboard box is intact, and one end is removable showing the ammunition within. There are a couple of splits on the seams, but the box has held together well for its age. There are 20 correct rounds of .50-70 centerfire ammunition with the Benet-primed copper anvil. This would make a great addition to any Indian War collection, or you could display it alongside your .50-70 rifle. The label reads as follows:
Charge, 70 Grains Musket Powder. Weight of Bullet, 450 Grains.
