Perfect for living history displays and reenactments, these inert musket cartridges are sure to complete your Civil War-era impression! Ten rounds come bundled in a period-correct Arsenal wrapper, stamped with a label copied from an original ammunition bundle.
Buck and Ball cartridges were widely used in the day of the smooth bore musket. The addition of three buckshot pellets to a standard .66cal musket ball significantly increased the hit probability of the average line company, and was put to deadly use on the battlefields of the 18th and 19th Centuries. Our display cartridges are built to original 19th Century specifications: three, cal.311 buckshot sit underneath a single, .66cal musket ball, wrapped up in sturdy, brown paper. Instead of powder, we've filled the cartridges with a charge of 110 grains of coarse, black sand to simulate the size and weight of a real charge. The ten rounds are bundled in a period-correct Arsenal package. The stamp is copied from an original Civil War cartridge bundle.
