    Good Book on CW Era Bullets?

    As many of you know I am pretty good at identifying modern bullets many of our forum members dig. But I would like to sharpen my skills on CW era dug bullets. Can any of you recommend a good book that has lots of pictures and descriptions of CW bullets? Much Appreciated. Monty

    The most prominent reference book for bullet collectors:

    Civil War Projectiles II - Small Arms & Field Artillery by W. Reid Mckee and M.E Mason Jr. 1980.

    Re: Good Book on CW Era Bullets?

    Gentlemen,

    A little assistance if you would please... I know this may fall into the category of post civil war, but I would like some confirmation on this .22 shell I had found. I believe it is a Phoenix Metallic Cartridge Co. copper coated shell produced between 1874-1891. I believe it is not a "Peters" cartridge because it has a roman-esque style "P" and not a smooth "P". Thank you for any help in advance.

    Sorry, Remington-Peters, probably 1950s. Monty

    This is the book I've always used and is the one North South Trader uses to ID bullets in their price guide.

    Re: Good Book on CW Era Bullets?

    Monty,

    Kindest Sir. I hate to continue to be a pain, but the closest possible date I can get for this cartridge would be of the most benefit. Using your advise, I found on the internet, the specified difference between the impressed "P" and the raised "P". Additionally, I was able to find a photo at an auction site that shows the headstamp from the 1950's for Peter's; and it was a smooth "P".

    Because I am working an area that contains overlapping layers of history, ironically, my ability to properly date my site rests with the ability to date this cartridge very specifically. All I have on the subject is the internet. If you would please, help me in this endeavor. I will be eternally greatful.

    Re: Good Book on CW Era Bullets?

    That's why I am looking for a book on early projectiles and bullets. I did not see where it was a "raised"P in your first inquiry. You need to post this inquiry on the "What Is It" forum and be very precise about the description. You should get several opinions. Does your book say anything about the Rem./Peters "Rocket" .22 shells? They came in flat packets like Chicklet gum and I don't recall what they had on the headstamp, assuming it was a Rem/Peters product. That's the only other ones I am familar with. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Monty

    I think you got it at a decent price. $123.00 is insane. I think you might be in for a surprise when you see all the different bullets and variants.

    Re: Good Book on CW Era Bullets?

    I pretty much knew how many varients there was, especially CSA. They made bullets enywhere they could with whatever equipment they could find. I have hands on with a great many modern bullets and there is just as many varients now days as there was back then. Monty
