.45-70 SHELL SCRAPER FOR RELOADING

$85.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 998-949

The army realized that it might be necessary for troops to salvage, reprime and reload expended cartridges. Reloading kits were therefore constructed and supplied on a limited basis. This is a shell scraper from the .45-70 reloading kit of 1882/83. No one knows the exact number of kits made, but they are not common. Containing tools to enable the reloading of all the standard .45 caliber military cartridge configurations, the .45-70 kit included one of these shell scrapers to enable the lucky soldier assigned the duty, to scrape out all the powder residue from a spent case in preparation for reloading it.

This one is 100 percent original, bears a US mark, as the tools should, and still has most of its bluing.  [sr]
