Authentic Paper Cartridges
Conical Bullets for Civil War era Cap & Ball Revolvers, .36 and .44 caliber
These conical pistol balls are cast on the wonderful Eras Gone bullet molds in .36-cal and .44-cal for Civil War era cap and ball revolvers.
.36-cal Colt Cartridge Works conical ball, pure lead, 128 grains -- This is a very pleasant shooting conical bullet that I have had great success with out of my little Colt 1862 Pocket Police revolver. The original design, which is beautifully captured by the Eras Gone mold, is an excellent shooter and loads easily (especially in cap and ball revolvers with the "conical cut out" in the frame).
.44-cal Johnston and Dow conical ball, pure lead, 220 grains -- A very successful contract-produced Civil War bullet, ten million of these conical bullets were sold to the U.S. Army by Johnston and Dow. It performed much better than the old Government ball. I have found it easy to load even in newer reproduction cap and ball revolvers.
