VERY RARE .36 CALIBER 3RD PATTERN RICHMOND COLT CARTRIDGE

$350.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1179-383

This is a scarce cartridge. The bullet in this cartridge is the third pattern, or enlarged Colt bullet made at the Richmond Laboratory.

The First Pattern bullet was the typical Colt bullet with a rebated base. The Second Pattern was a very pointy bullet with a single deep groove. The diameter of these proved to be too small and the Third Pattern arose when the Second Pattern bullet molds were milled out to make a larger diameter bullet. These bullets feature the bulbous top you see in this cartridge.

This is a very scarce Confederate cartridge, made in Richmond. The cartridge remains in excellent condition.  [jet] [ph:L]
