Abstract : The patent relates to a cartridge fabricated from consumable material and having a rim which can be used to extract it should it fail to fire. A fuse train leading from the cartridge's initiator to the cartridge's rim is used to ignite a pyrotechnic train in the rim after the cartridge has been fired and thereby initiate consumption of the rim.
