Enfield Paper Cartridges for Rifle-Muskets, .568 and .550 cal cartridges
.568-cal Pritchett cartridge (1853)
Early British and Confederate variant
.550-cal Boxer cartridge (1859)
Final British version of the Enfield cartridge
Watch (and listen!) as a bullet from one of our cartridges hits a steel plate at 300 yards. Yeah, the video says 250, but it was actually closer to 300. Notice that you can hear the sound of the gunshot before the bullet impact; at 300 yards the bullet has already gone subsonic.
My .550-caliber Enfield cartridges are copies of originals, made by E. & A. Ludlow, of Birmingham, a major supplier for the Confederate Army during the Civil War
Loading and firing the Enfield paper cartridge. They slide down the barrel with ease, even after firing dozens (or hundreds) of rounds.
