These cartridges are a faithful reproduction of the originals, and come completed up to the point of adding gunpowder.
The cartridges are constructed of three, .31cal buckshot underneath a .66cal lead ball, wrapped in sturdy, brown paper, and the pattern is copied from the US Army 1841 Ordnance Manual. The top of the cartridge is open and ready to receive a charge of powder. Included is a historically corrrect stamped Arsenal wrapper so that you can bundle your completed cartridges. The illustrated instruction sheet will guide you through the proper method of folding the rounds shut. All materials and processes are historically accurate, and have been based off the instructions found in the 1841 US Army Ordnance Manual.
Ten rounds come in each pack- just add powder and they’re ready for the range!
