Ammunition Resupply & the Tale of the Schofield Revolver



The 1875 Schofield revolver was an ingenious design that allowed for a very fast reload both for the soldier on the ground as well as for a mounted cavalryman.

As excellent as this revolver is, however, it takes a proprietary cartridge - the .45 S&W.

The US Army adopted this revolver as a potential replacement of the venerable Colt SAA, which was chambered in 45 Colts.

Resupply hilarity ensues, although it was no laughing matter for the men fighting the indian wars...
