Question on ammo

In DHs response to FW 7-18 "FA made one attempt at Berdan primed cases 3&4 1877". Were these cases headstamped FA and month and year as the Benet primed cases starting in 3-1877?

The military soon after, apparently experimented by buying reloadable Berdan and Boxer primed cases from commercial suppliers. US cartridge Co and Winchester being boxer primed and Bridgeport marked ones being Berdan primed. How long did this practice last?
