Description:One of my favorite projectiles, the 20-lber Parrott Chilled Nose (aka Bottle Nose) bolt was used at a few battles but not extensively. They were used here at Kennesaw and also at Port Hudson so name a couple. This bolt has pretty good iron and a nice clean bottle nose. It chipped upon firing causing it to loose the sabot which did not happen a lot. When viewed from one side you see very little chipping. This is just a real good reasonably priced projectile that displays very well.

Projectile is inert, cleaned and coated.
