Burnside-Maynard Metallic Cartridge

About the same time the Burnside- Maynard and a few others were produced, some of which were good in their day and for the arms for which they were designed, but were fired by means of a cap, through a vent, at some distance from the cartridge, and were extracted by the fingers. With them there was not that necessary nicety of fit to the chamber of the gun, the joint was not absolutely closed, and the failures to explode were as frequent as with the old-fashioned paper cartridge and percussion-cap. Such failures would, nowadays, be considered a most unwarranted percentage in any metallic ammunition laying claim to excellence, and, in the best known varieties, do not occur to the extent of one in one thousand rounds; in fact, many attain a much higher standard of surety than indicated by this figure. The records of the testing-rounds show long-continued firing and consumption of thousands of rounds without failure at all from any cause, and the summation of a year's practice and test, in proof of manufacture, exhibits but an exceedingly small percentage of such failures.
