.52 cal Pritchett rifled musket bullet (Confederate)
bullet : configuration : round nosed with pointed conical base cavity. Relic, point flattened and abraded
Authority: Baisden, C N : 1980. Used by the Confederate States during the American Civil War. Having relatively little industrial capacity, the Confederate States purchased whatever arms they could find in Europe. While the Confederates did their best to standardise on the .577 Enfield rifle, bought in Britain, Belgium, Spain and made locally, or .58 Springfields, which in effect shared a common calibre, force of circumstance resulted in the use of any viable firearm.
