I will express an opinion (we all know what that's worth), that the term refers to a cartridge that includes the bullet, powder, a casing and the primer - to be set off with a firing pin or hammer. This is based on the Williams gun - externally primed (nipple on the side - hit with a side hammer) after the breech block is closed. Check out the picture in the Newmarket pix I posted.
