A00099 - Half section of a 12pdr Bormann ball with bullets for case shot
Sorry, this item is no longer available!



Item Number: F00099

Item Title: Half section of a 12pdr Bormann ball with bullets for case shot

Price: $285

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US/CS

Type: Spherical case shot

Size: 12pdr

Sabot:

Fuse: Bormann time fuse (missing)

Book: Dickey and George (1993 Edition) Page 35

Location Recovered: Spanish Fort, AL

Description:Incredibly tough to find case shot with bullets inside instead of balls. You see these in Wright fused shells, but they are very rare in Bormann balls that actually got used in the war. I got over 100 12pdr balls from a big collection out of the Spanish Fort area of Alabama and only 3 had bullets inside.
