The Indians would punch a hole in the casing.. and put a leather cord through it and under pressure remove it from the chamber. I guess it worked as I've seen a few they did that with. Ike (Keogh) has a good number relic casings from them removed in this manner. Least I think so.. don't think the ones I am thinking of were re-purposed tinkle cones.
