Identify case from headstamp


#1

What is a suspected 50-70 shot cartridge is reportedly headstamped U.M.C. Co. 50 Express. I have not seen the fired case ( only), but if this isn’t 50-70, what else could it be?


#2

I would suggest that a very good possibility would be a .50-95 Winchester, as UMC headstamped this U.M.C.CO. 50 EX. This was, at one time, loaded as a shot cartridge, as well as with Solid Ball and Express bullets…

Thanks, Randy. This is what I had in mind also.

Randy is right. I have the same headstamp and my sample is a 50 - 95 Winchester
