Those troublesome 2,200 fps cartridges.

These pages from June 30, 1900, Frankford Arsenal Report, tell of multiple problems 'hot rodding' the .30-40 cartridge: bullet-jackets, broken lugs, and split-necks ... oh my!

(p.s. We take a lot for granted now. It was tough, getting all of the 'bugs' out of this stuff, back in the day)!
