ryaussy & Sherryl

Yes these are factory loads with the raised X on the copper insert. The Winchester factory did this as Sherryl shows. It’s found in a number of case types, is not explosive but rather an aid to make the bullet expand. It’s a hollow copper tube closed at one end the UMC variations were plain, looking much like the Dominion Sherryl shows

The “Express” term comes from British origin (Purdey of London I believe) as it would “hit like an express train”

The English (Eley) did make the .50-95 WCF Sherryl.

This thread needs moved to the general question & answer part of the forum.
