Re: Original Cartridge Question

Notice after posting on several boards that some readers respond without reading the full text. The stuck cartridge would be a fired non reloadable Benet primed case. The weapon in question would be a first issue 1873 Springfield trapdoor carbine. The removed case had no further use and would be discarded. The carbine could then be reloaded and be fired again.
