.560″ CS Enfield Bullets (Qty. 36ea)
My reproduction of this bullet is cast on a very special mold. Mr. Dan Wambaugh of Wambaugh, White & Co. graciously loaned me his original Civil War Era English made, Confederate-imported Enfield mold to use, test and copy. The original molds, the bullets, and the cartridges they were used to construct are covered in great detail in “Roundball to Rimfire Part Four, A Contribution to the History of the Confederate Ordnance Bureau” by Dean S. Thomas. If you intend to attempt making your own cartridges with these bullets, I cannot recommend that book more highly.
With the help of Brooks Moulds, I am able to bring to you an utterly exact replica of the original bullet, with measurements taken directly from the original. No guesswork, no approximations, no interpretations, indeed not a reproduction at all, but an exact clone. This bullet is .5595″ in diameter, 1.025″ long, 560gr in weight cast in dead pure soft lead, and has a conical, plug-less cavity and a slightly beveled base.
The mold I used as a template is of the type that were included in each crate of twenty Enfield Rifle Muskets shipped from England to the Confederacy for use during the American Civil War. These molds were imported in both the nose and side pour varieties, and were used across the entire Confederacy. A more accurate example of reproduction Confederate-made rifle ammunition simply cannot be made.
My reproductions are sold in boxes of 36 each. Since they are meant to be rolled into cartridges before firing, or shot with paper patching at the very least, I do not sell them pre-lubricated.
