bullets(24) confederate Gardner.
The .58 caliber Gardner was patented on August 17, 1861 by the Confederate States of America. The Gardner was unique because of how the paper cartridge was attached to the bullet. Normally the paper was either wrapped or tied around the body, but in the Gardner the paper was actually inserted into a groove in the bullet’s base. This group of bullets were excavated in Petersburg, Virginia.
Order B9844   $129.95

bullets(8) .58 caliber Gardner Minie Balls.
These Minie balls were excavated in Varina, Virginia. The unique thing about these bullets is the bases are flared, that being the result of improper seating by the famous Gardner bullet manufacturing machine that was in the Richmond Arsenal. The machine was designed to crimp the upraised skirt of the ball down over the powder bag, in this case it did not crimp it, so it resulted in partial crimping making the ball impossible to use therefore they were discarded by the Confederate soldier. Very unique and very unusual to find so many from one cartridge box.

Specifications: Case type Rimmed, straight Bullet diameter .515 in (13.1 mm) Neck diameter .535 in (13.6 mm) Base diameter .565 in (14.4 mm) Rim diameter .660 in (16.8 mm) Rim thickness .065 in (1.7 mm) Case length 1.75 in (44 mm) Overall length 2.25 in (57 mm) Primer type Large rifle Maximum pressure 22,500 psi (155 MPa) Ballistic performance Bullet weight/type Velocity Energy 425 gr (28 g) Lead SP 1,448 ft/s (441 m/s) 1,979 ft·lbf (2,683 J) 550 gr (36 g) Lead FN 1,375 ft/s (419 m/s) 2,310 ft·lbf (3,130 J) 400 gr (26 g) SP 1,849 ft/s (564 m/s) 3,037 ft·lbf (4,118 J) Test barrel length: 28" Source(s): Accurate Powder [1] The .50-70 Government cartridge was a black powder round adopted in 1866 for the Springfield Model 1866 Trapdoor Rifle. The cartridge was developed after the unsatisfactory results of the .58 rimfire cartridge for the Springfield Model 1865 Trapdoor Rifle. The .50-70 Government cartridge became the official cartridge of the US military until replaced by the .45-70 Government in 1873. The .50-70 cartridge had a pressure limit of 22,500 PSI.[1] The official designation of this cartridge at the time of introduction was "US Center- fire Metallic Cartridge", and the commercial designation .50-70-450, standing for : Caliber .50 Powder Charge 70 grains (4.5 g) black powder Bullet Weight 450 grains (29 g)[2] Since this cartridge is no longer commercially produced, reloaders have experimented with a variety of bullet weights from 425 to 600 grains (39 g) in weight. There is evidence that a reduced load version of this cartridge was officially produced for use in Sharps carbines converted to metallic cartridge ammunition, as well as cadet rifles. This used a 430-grain (28 g) bullet and 45 grains (2.9 g) of powder.

bulletCivil War Period Lefauchoux Pinfire 12mm Cartridge.
The Lefaucheux M1858 was a French military revolver, chambered for the 12mm pinfire cartridge, based on a design by Casimir Lefaucheux. It was the first metallic cartridge revolver adopted by a national government. It was first fielded in 1858 by the French Navy, and though never issued by the French Army, it was used in limited numbers by the French Cavalry during their 1862 deployment to Mexico.

bulletCivil War Period Lefauchoux 7.5mm Pinfire Cartridge.
This cartridge is made by ELEY Brothers in London. The basic design for the 7mm pinfire Lefaucheux revolver has it's roots way back in the year 1823 when a man by the name of Casimir Lefaucheux invented the pinfire cartridge in Paris, France. Some sources say that Lefaucheux actually invented the cartridge in 1828, but regardless of the exact date that this French gunsmith conceived the pinfire cartridge, it was officially patented in 1835. The pinfire cartridge consisted of a casing with an internal primer that was ignited by a pin that protrudes from the side of the case. This design may now be considered as antique weapons, but at the time it was an innovative advancement in firearm technology.

head onConfederate - Union head on! This unbelievable Chancellorsville find demonstrates how hot the rifle fire must have been between the two sides! Recovered in 1981, this amazing example of 2 Minie balls colliding in mid-air is a 2 in a million coincidence. I have analyzed this relic in several ways. 1. One Minie has no rings at all and this is almost certainly a Confederate Enfield ball and according to Dean and Jim Thomas, the Union did not use Minie balls without rings (A Handbook of Civil War Bullets & Cartridges, page 50). The other ball has 3 exaggerated raised rings which became more pronounced because of the impact from the Confederate Enfield. 3. I have weighed the collided balls and they weigh 978 grains (combined weight). As you can see from one of the photos, the combined weight of a .577 Enfield and a .577 3-ring Washington Arsenal ball is 990 grains. I think you would agree that there must be some inevitable loss of mass from the collision.
