.45 CALIBER PAPER PATCHED CYLINDRICAL WHITWORTH BULLET

$90.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1179-390

Here is a nice “non-dug” .45 caliber cylindrical Whitworth bullet with its original paper patch. These were shipped separate and the proper measure of powder would be added as needed.

In 1854, Sir Joseph Whitworth, a prominent British engineer and entrepreneur, patented the concept of cannons which had a twisted hexagonal bore rather than the established smooth or rifled round bore.  The combination of the hexagonal cross section of the bore, and the corresponding shaped projectile added range and accuracy to the projectiles. In the case of the cylindrical bullets with a cavity, the rounds actually conformed to the shape of the barrel upon firing.

This is an excellent specimen of an interesting bullet design.  [jet] [ph:L]
