Re: Original Cartridge Question

I'll probably catch hell for this - but why was it felt significant to mention that a particular .50-70 shell was "American" and "centerfire". Not newsworthy - the opposite would be quite surprising, Rim-fire, or foreign-made, .50-70 would be quite uncommon, would it not? Also, if it is Boxer-primed that should indicate later (non-contemporary) usage, would it not? Just curious.
