John, With the amount of reloading going on at the various fort sites some sort of fairly quick and efficient method had to be employed. Zupan in his TOOLS, TARGETS, AND TROOPERS book details some of the reloading methods. Also mentions the fact that after reloading became common a trooper was no longer restricted to an annual quota of ammo, but was allowed and encouraged to fire as many as possible. Am sure this resulted in a few fireing alot and becoming very proficient.
As the discussion on the seperation of cases moves on it is to be noted that I have found none of the tinned cases nor any of the early boxer primed contract cases with this seperation. Hope this thread duz not die as it is sure an interest to some.
