The 50-70 Government was the first centerfire rifle cartridge adopted by the United States Army. Developed for the Model 1866 Trapdoor Springfield rifle, the 50-70 is considered a heavy powered cartridge, generating over 2000 foot pounds of energy. Although it only saw seven years of use before being replaced by the 45-70 Government, it clearly has earned a spot in the Cartridge Hall of Fame. Watch along as Larry Potterfield, Founder of MidwayUSA, takes a brief look at our first centerfire rifle cartridge.
