160th Wilderness: 40rds of Loaded CS Enfield Blanks
Out of stock
OUT OF STOCK, GROUP-BUY CLOSED AS OF 3FEB24.
For the 160th Wilderness event taking place in May of 2024, I will be taking on pre-orders for loaded arsenal packets of blank cartridges! THESE PRE-ORDERS ARE FOR DELIVERY ONLY! There will be no shipping of loaded cartridges. If you place a pre-order for the event and do not attend, you will be refunded. If you’re attending this event in my company, ammunition will be issued to you from proper crates!
IF YOU’RE ATTENDING THE EVENT AS FEDERAL: YOU MUST SPECIFY AS SUCH IN THE ORDER NOTES. THIS GROUP BUY IS FOR CS LABELED AMMUNITION, DELIVERED TO THE CS CAMPAIGNER BATTALION. IF YOU DO NOT IDENTIFY YOURSELF AS FEDERAL, YOU WILL GET CS-LABELED AMMUNITION ANYWAY, AND I WON’T KNOW IN ADVANCE TO SEPARATE YOUR AMMO FOR DISTRIBUTION AT REGISTRATION.
Each pre-order is for 4 arsenal packets of 10 loaded Enfield-style blank cartridges, with 12 caps. For those of you choosing to carry the English-import cartridge boxes, or the standardized CS copy of the M1839 Box, the Enfield-style cartridge is most suitable! This style of cartridge had been chosen for standardization by the CS Ordnance Dep’t in 1862, and while full standardization was never achieved, it was the most common .577/.58cal ammunition in Confederate service by the time of the Wilderness.
Bear in mind, these cartridges are long, and WILL NOT FIT in the the US M1857 .58cal cartridge boxes, or the CS clones thereof. This was a common problem encountered in the field by Confederate soldiers, and played a part in the adoption of the M1839 Style cartridge box being chosen for adoption by the Confederate Army. If you have one of the smaller cartridge boxes, worry not, the Minie-style cartridges on the other listing are for you!
IF YOU ARE NOT ATTENDING THE 160TH WILDERNESS, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. YOU WILL BE REFUNDED IMMEDIATELY IF YOU’RE NOT ON THE REGISTRATION LIST.
