History of the .50 Remington cartridges ( 2 versions):
The first version: .50 Remington “Navy” (M67)
was introduced in the U.S.A., around 1866 for the Navy Model 1867 (M67) rolling block pistol and was a straight, with very slight taper, rim-fired cartridge and later as a straight walled center-fire case.
The .50 Remington a/k/a .50 Remington Army (M71) cartridge  was the second version of this caliber.
The later version (below) .50 Remington “Army” (M71)
was a “bottle necked” case for the Remington Army Model 1871 rolling block pistol introduced in 1870 had an “Inside Primed” Benet Cup internal primed center-fired cartridge.
Then later, sometime around 1873, the cartridge primer changed to an external primed (Martin Primed) and later to a regular, more modern, outside primed case.
Ammunition was loaded by both Remington and Winchester and was available until about 1920, making this caliber obsolete for over 103 years on regular primed and up to 150 years on inside primed at this writing.
The Army (M71) version has a large diameter projectile and will not fire in the Navy (M67) rolling block pistol.
