40-50 Sharps(Necked)
The 40-50 sharps (necked case) were introduced in 1869.
Also known as the 40- 1&11/16", it was used in the 1869
model Sharps rifle. Cartridges were produced by Sharps,
Winchester and UMC. I must confess as these have no
Head Stamp, I am not sure which company is the maker
of these cartridges. Most likely Sharps or Winchester.
