We’re going to take a brief hiatus from the relic world, but we will be back soon. Apologies in advance if our replies are delayed but there’s no paid time off (or healthcare benefits) at BulletandShell. The East coast syndicate running it is a bunch of taskmasters so we have to sneak off whenever we can.

Sorry, this item is no longer available!

Item Number: F00399

Item Title: Bormann 12-lber Half Shell

Price: $170

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS

Type: Cannon ball

Size: 12-lber (4.62 Inch Caliber)

Sabot: Wood Cup (Missing)

Fuse: Bormann Time Fuse


Location Recovered: Unknown

Description:This is a common shell meaning it was made with no shrapnel balls inside the powder cavity. As such the cavity walls are thicket to make heavier shrapnel and it contained more powder than a 12-lber case shell would have. this gave the shrapnel a longer reach to inflict damage. This shell half used an iron underplug and shows a safety groove under the Bormann fuse indicating CS manufacture. The powder path can be clearly seen in the fuse which is in pretty good shape, better than most that are cut.

Shell is inert, cleaned and coated.
