.63 caliber Brunswick
« on: November 08, 2018, 09:23:46 PM »
I came across a decent find today.  While looking thru a bunch of Enfield bullets, I noticed one that was noteably larger and heavier.  Turns out to be a .63 caliber Brunswick made in the CSA.   Reference #606 on page 242 of Round Ball Part Four.  It pays to dig thru those bins of common bullets in souvenir stores!

Bullet on left is new find (#606).  Bullet on right is #605 in Round Ball Part 4.

That is a good find. It is noticeably fatter than a run of the mill Enfield and sometimes lumped in with them. 

Hope you make it to Franklin, Jim.
