that I, GEonGiaQ. Hnwma nited- Statesgresidngat and ce address SBtifR.' No. 4,- Green-' county ofHanc'ockand State of Indiana',yh ave invented new'aud useful I r'nl provementsin Caseless Cartridgesfau'd Projectiles,`of which the following isa'specifica-- 1tion. This invention relates to caseless cartridges e character described `'which will prop'ela projectile with greaterV cased within the shell now in use.
IA .further object is to 'so construct the A still further objectis to construetadevice whereby the necessity of a Surroundingshell inclosing the powderI will'4v obviated.
With' these objects in- 'View thej-n'vention consists' in providing a circular cap-plate in which the cap is secured and molding or forniwh'ich is secured both tothe cap-plate and projectile,-so that when thev piece is disbarrel of the piece will consistonlyof the cap.-
ile,the reby materially lessening the cost of 'Tliepeculiar manner'of'accomplishing'the desired result will -be describedv hereinafter,
ing clearly illustrated in .the drawings, in'W-hich- Figure lis a side elevation ot' a cartridge and projectile constructed in accordance with myi'nventiomand Fig. 2 is a longitudinalsectionalview through the same. i
Referring now to the drawings by numerals o f reference, 1 designates .the circular capplate provided with acent'ral op'ening in which accompanying The charge designatedby the refercncel moral 3- consists. of a 'cylindrical-shaped secured to the .cap''piece th rough the medium of aplurality'of forwardly-projecting pins 4, either formed with or 'secured to said *cap-` piece and embeddediu the charge.
--5 designates a centrally-located and 'longi-l tudinally-extending bore within the charge running the ent-ire length thereof in line with the central opening4 and front-Which radiate a .pluralityofforwardly -inclined series'of communicating cylindrical channels or pasvsages G.- -The'object-and purpose of these passages is t o provide a means zwhereby the ignited, charge from the cap .will spread through the'entire mass com posingthe charge and practically ignite thevsame throughout' simultaneously; thus permitting the projectile v7to receive the full force of the charge at onetime; lf these channels and the'central' bore. were n'ot provided, itis probable that the charge would,bevignite d slowly-that is to say,
the powder-.nearest the cap would ignite and expend its force before the powder `near't h a projectileavould be; ignited.' However, by einploying-a cnstruction'as above desc'ri'bed 'au` illustratedy this undesirable feature will be ebviated, and it is apparent, therefore, that the projectile would be propelle@ with greater velocity than it would if the s lowburniug cartridge gene'xaiiyin use was utlized.'
. Ow'ingto the fact that'I dispenseY with a surrounding' shell inclosing the charge`, `I find it' necessary'to provide a central. recess or bore 8 in the-projectile 7, in 'which is fitted a -pin projecting a suitable length beyond the end thereof `and of approximately the same diameter'asthe 4I )o're 5 in the charge.
