Z7100 Rare .50-70 Multi-Ball Cartridge
Description: Rare .50-70 internally Benet-primed centerfire multi-ball cartridge. This example has three lead balls inside of a gilding metal case. The copper Benet primer cup is held in place with two crimps measuring .214” up from the bottom of the cartridge. The case length is 1.859” which is longer than your standard .50-70 case. A very rare example that I would date to 1878+. A very nice example with a little spotting on the case.
