Replica Bullet: .44 Caliper
The .44 caliber Model 1860 Colt revolver was one of the most widely used handguns during the Civil War. It was developed before the war and was carried by both Union and Confederate soldiers. Approximately 38% of revolvers purchased by the Federal government during the Civil War were Colt. The standard powder charge for the .44 caliber bullet was 30 grains. All Colts used during the war were six-shot, single action, percussion revolvers. These bullet replicas are made of lead-free materials. Manufactured in the USA by Americana Souvenirs.
"And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer." - F. Scott Fitzgerald
