CARTRIDGE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 487,125, dated November 29, 1892. Application filed May 21, 1891. Serial No. 393,664. (No model.) Patented in France J'annary 10, 1891, No. 210,709.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JACQUES ANTOINE CREUZE DE LATOUCHE, a citizen of France, residing at Paris, in the Department of the Seine, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Military and Sporting Ammunition, (for which I have obtained Letters Patent in France, dated J anuarylO, 1891, No. 210,709,) of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in cartridges; and the objects of my invention are to produce a cartridge having an explosive body which may be filled with loose powder or explosives, if desired, and also to provide a gas-check for the cartridge in which a projectile may be seated and which when fired will lubricate the gun and will then fall apart and be thrown out of the guns trajectory.

To this end my invention consists in a cartridge, the construction of which will be hereinafter described and claimed.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, formingapart of this specification, in which similar figures of reference indicate corresponding parts in both the views.

Figure 1 is a longitudinal section of a cartridge embodying my invention, and Fig. 2 is a plan view of the gas-check used on the cartridge. j v

The cartridge has a hollow body 10, which is made of explosive material, and which, if desired, may be made of progressive rates of combustion. This body or shell has an ejecting-base 11 of the usual kind attached to it, and the base carries the ordinary primer 12. The body has an inner chamber 13, which, if desired, may be charged with a loose explosive 14, having a different rate of combustion than the body or shell 10. At the open end of the body or shell is a gas-check 15, which consists of a series of washers 16, preferably of paper, layers of wax 17 between the washers, clamping-plates 18 of the same diameter as the washers and arranged at the ends of the tier of washers, and rivets 19, holding the washers together and between the clampingplates. The gas-check is held to the shell or body by screws 20, or it may be fastened in any other convenient way. The gas-check is provided with longitudinal radial slots 21 and with a bore 22, in which the base 23 of a projectile 24 may be seated, the projectile having a flange 25 to rest upon the outer face of the gas-check. The slots 21 are of such a size that they weaken the gas-check, so that it holds until the cartridge is fired, and then it breaks apart and falls out of the Lguns projectile.

It will be understood that the bore 22 may be made to receive any desired form of projectile, and it will also be understood thatthe gas-check may be of the same size in crosssection as-the shell 10, or it may be reduced to correspond with the diameter of the gun in which it is inserted. a

The bore of the gas-check is coated with,

collodion before the projectile is seated, and when the cartridge is fired the projectile slips readily from its seat, and the wax which issues from between the washers 16 serves to 1ubri cate the gun.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- 1. A cartridge comprising an explosive body having a suitable base and agas-check secured to the open end of the body or shell, the gas-check comprising a series of layers of waxed washers and having a central bore to seat a projectile, and longitudinal radial slots opening from the bore, substantially as described.

2. The combination, with the cartridgebody, of the gas-check'adapted to be secured to the end of the body, the gas-check comprising a series of washers separated by layers of wax, clamping-plates secured to opposite ends of the tending through-the plates-and washers, and the gas-check having a central bore to seat a projectile, and longitudinal radial slots opening from the bore, substantially as described.

In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence of t.vo subscribing witnesses.
