Description:Cartridge for the 577/450 Martini-Henry rifle. This one has the rare, super thin brass cartridge. The failings of this cartridge are immortalized in one of my favorite films, Zulu (link to end of it below) when the British rifles became so hot from repeat firing that they stripped these thin brass jackets and many failed in the carnage of battle.
