While patiently waiting to get my 1860 Army back from Goons I decided to try my hand at making some Civil War cartridges for it. So I ordered a cartridge kit and a sweet mold (.44 Johnston &Dow) from Eras Gone. Here’s my first few cartridges. These are very fun to make and look pretty neat. I’ve read that folks shoot more accurately with lose powder and round ball but what the hell. The cool factor wins.
