 That is well used for sure. At least one of the measures, second from the Left looks like a cutdown cartridge. Great find, Nice piece for any collection.

Im the later Muzzleloading era, it wasnít uncommon for cartridges cases from early rounds such as the .50-70 Govít, Spencer carbine, and later the Winchester rifles etc. to be utilized as measures.

Some of the early center fire cartridges show little external markings. These could also be old cartridges with a ring soldered on.
