Price: $20

Provenance: US/CS


Size: .58 cal




Location Recovered: Cold Harbor

You see fired CS Gardners that are "blow thrus" fairly often, but rarely so with a .58 Minie ball. This is a phenomenon where the powder charge literally blew through the bullet cavity and out the nose of the bullet, endangering the soldier firing his weapon.
