Bullet and Shell will be at Dalton Show the first weekend in February. We will be picking up a collection on the way so will have lots of fresh to the market bullets and shells.

We continue to experience intermittent delivery of order emails, so it's wise to email us directly at and to be sure your order gets through. Thank you for your patience while we try to address this.

Item Number: A01106

Item Title: 12pdr CS polygonal cavity shell

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS

Type: Spherical shell

Size: 12pdr



Book: Dickey and George (1993 Edition) Page 30

Description:These poygonal cavity shells have lines of weakness cast into the interior to facilitate their bursting into 12 equal pieces. Colonel Mallett picked up this idea from the British and brought it to the Confederacy. There is a lot written on these shells and I am happy to send additional documentation along with it.

This one displays nicely as is, but if I had more time, I'd run it so the surface "orange peel" rust would come off to make it slick. Has a nice mold seam and you can feel the lines of weakness inside with your small finger.
