Looks like some promoters are going for it and trying to run their shows. Who knows if enough people will show up to make them worthwhile. I hope it works out but have concerns as we all do. Still figuring out which ones we'll attend this summer, but it looks like we'll try and do them. Stay tuned as the situation is fluid.

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.

B00612 - Desirable uncrimped Gardner bullet

Item Number: B00612

Item Title: Desirable uncrimped Gardner bullet

Price: $35

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS


Size: .58 caliber




Location Recovered:

Description:The Gardner patent cartridge machine crimped the bullet bottom around the end of the paper cartridge tube. Rarely this didn't quite work and yet the cartridge made it to the field. A soldier would take one look at the misshapen bullet and toss it aside, probably all the while muttering something about the incompetence in Richmond.

The "skirt" on this Gardner is not crimped down properly. That makes it a highly desirable bullet for collectors.
