    Note: After you click on images to ENLARGE them, you may find they automatically size smaller in your browser's window making them harder to view. The auto sizing is your browser's way of keeping images entirely within the screen size you have set. Move your mouse pointer to the bottom centre of the pic and you will see an options panel appear. There will be a small square box next to the large X, which will have a pointer arrow sticking out of it. If it's illuminated, it means the pic you're viewing can be enlarged, so click on this box and the pic will EXPAND and open to its normal size.

    Metallic Cartridges Testing (Regulation and Experimental) (1873)



    This manual was scanned at 300 dpi and saved in uncompressed .tff format before conversion to PDF file format, so the pages are as clear as possible and blow up (zoom larger) very well. Interesting period publication which discusses the service and experimental metallic cartridges of the time, as manufactured and tested by Frankford Arsenal. Good read for old military cartridge collectors and reloaders.
