Re: Biting the cartridge
In Response To: Biting the cartridge ()

Hello Alexander

"this is an error in Western books? "

Or the opposite ?

The Réglement de 1791 write :

4e temps : déchirez la cartouche.

Déchirer la cartouche jusqu'à la pudre, la tenant près de l'ouverture entre le pouce et les deux premiers doigts; la descendre tout de suite et la placer perpendiculairement contre lebassinet, la paume de la main droite tournée vers le corps, le coude droit appuyé sur la crosse.

Now, I never tried myself.... and I don't know if this will answer your question.

Cheers

Robert
