At SLICS I was trying to find a .40-90-500 What Cheer (Which I never did find–if you have one for sale let me know). At John Scott’s table I commented to him that the .40-90-500 was the last of the 3 loadings of “What Cheer” that I still needed. He said "Actually there are [color=#FF0000]four[/color] different “What Cheer” rounds. I disputed this with John, saying that there were only three, .40-70, .40-90 & .44-95. I should have known better than to argue with John Scott. He promptly pulled out a copy of a U.S.C.Co. broadside and there it was: a “.40-[color=#FF0000]60[/color] What Cheer”, right beside the .40-70 What Cheer.
So, now my question is: Does anyone actually have a .40-60 What Cheer in their collection. It is a round-nosed, paper-patched bottle-necked case about 1/4 inch shorter than a .40-70 What Cheer.
