.58 Cal. Union Mini Ball Civil War Bullet Replica

Details

The .58 caliber Union Minnie Ball was the most widely used bullet in the Civil War. Named after its creator, Captain Claude Etienne Minnie of the French Army, the Mini Ball is not round as its name suggests. This bullet was perfected in 1848 and officially adopted by the US Army in 1855. Rings were added to the design by the Americans. The rings held grease to help ease the bullet down the barrel as well as to collect powder residue when fired. Minnie Balls were extremely accurate within 350 yards. These bullet replicas are made of lead-free materials. Manufactured in the USA by Americana Souvenirs.
