Found a whole pile of inside primed .45 Colt in an area downhill from Jerome, AZ that had been smashed and then burned (hence the pile). The "story" is that U.S. Army troops (probably from nearby Fort Verde) were instructed to do this to their fired brass to prevent the local Apaches from reloading and reusing it. Unfortunately, no legible headstamps. (Don't know if the "story" is true or not.)
