I had a guy bring me a sharps rifle that he wanted to know what it was chambered in. Not my forte so I did a chamber cast. 50-70 government. He picked up his rifle and left. Well he comes back today with a bottlenecked cartridge that was headstamped as 50-70 but it was a 45cal bullet. Im sure you gurus probably know what it was but I informed him that it wasn't what his rifle is chambered in.

if your question isn't answered by then I'll try to help...
There were several bottle neck cartridges that Sharps were chambered for...
Is this an original or a reproduction?
Anyway, that's my guess. It would help alot to actually see the cartridge.
