    Enfield vs Springfield

    When I had a Volunteer, I mounted a high globe front sight and moved the rear sight up a step from bottom. It helped. Also, a vernier tang sight with the globe works very well.

    Can you help me understand? The bore of my rifle seems to be tighter near the muzzle.

    There is also progressive depth rifling. Some CW era muskets had that.

    Rifleman's cartridge box??

    Just curious if they were used by American riflemen. Understood the Baker was later, but the principle is the same, a rifleman using paper cartirdges and box. What about the Hessians?

    Rifleman's cartridge box??

    Thanks for the response. Was thinking more about riflemen and their possible use of a cartridge box. The British Baker rifle apparently used wrapped balls in a paper cartridge in one variant. BTW does anyone know how the British riflemen using the Ferguson used cartridge boxes? Thanks.
