    That depends on the condition of the brass. I forget the term, but some folks who reload modern ammo go through a process that makes the brass a little softer so it can be resized. Someone will pipe up with the term I’m sure.
    However, I can get you replica bullets if you want, I shoot civil war arms in competition and know a few guys that shoot model 5 burnsides, I shoot an original Smith carbine and the bullets look similar but I believe the burnside is .54 caliber.

    heating metal and then letting it cool slowly, changes the crystalline structure and softens the metal, as opposed to tempering which is heating metal and quenching it quickly to harden it.

    Can you post a pic of the cartridge ? show us how flat it is. You might be able to do it yourself.

    Maybe if you can open the end of the cartridge just enough (with something like a standard screwdriver) To insert a tapered wooden dowel .You might be able to open it up the rest of the way by pounding the dowel end with a hammer. dunno.

    Annealing brass/copper is just the opposite. Heat it up, then quench.
    But old brass, is very fragile, and tends to crumble.
