    Just caught up to this thread. WOW! Formidable weapons.
    When my Brother was a Pittsburgh policeman, a long hidden storage area was uncovered while digging in what had been the old Arsenal during the Civil War. (In modern times, the area had become a park!) Lots of grapeshot cannon balls, many with the powder charge and fuse still in them. He picked up one that was about two thirds complete - so you could see the grapeshot neatly stacked up, but the charge and fuse were gone.

    I was wondering about that, I figured that no one was actually using "standard / full " loads for safety reasons alone, So now to imagine what that was like !
