Z3323 .577 Enfield Cartridge, Confederate Manufacture
Description: Here is a very nice Confederate produced .577 Enfield cartridge. More than likely, this one is a product of the Augusta Arsenal but I can’t say for sure without seeing the original packet. The Confederates copied the English pattern Enfield cartridge and there is very little difference between each the two. The English produced Enfield bullets had a boxwood plug. The Confederate produced Enfield bullets had a conical cavity. The knot under the waxed end of the cartridge will not penetrate the cavity due to the boxwood plug being in place. English manufactured cartridges will typically have a bump on the end where the knot is. Confederate Enfields were cast and issued without the plug. The knot on the end of the waxed cartridge typically rests within the cavity of the projectile creating a base that is flush with the heel of the bullet.
Measures: OAL 2.896”
