Making Civil War cartridge bundles and shooting an original Springfield rifle musket to 300 m

Please support us at For buying Capandball Civil War cartridge boxes, cartridge formers, arsenal labels and US arsenal Stadias: or the Capandball webpage:

Johnny Reb and Billy Yank filled their cartridge boxes from bundles holding 10 cartridges and the percussion caps. The cartridges were wrapped in paper sheets, and labels were printed or glued to them to indicate the content. These labels always fascinated me as they are just excellent mementos of a long-gone period. I started to replicate the wrapper labels of the American Civil rifle muskets like the Springfield and Enfield. They are available in our stores.
