|A0565...Rifled artillery projectile, Broun design,
Confederate manufacture, bursting projectile, long
pattern with single bourrelet ring, copper band sabot, wood time
fuze, Confederate rifle, 3in. Projectile was Confederate
manufactured following William Broun's design. The sabot system utilized was a thin
copper band sabot, notched into the base of the projectile. This pattern projectile with a rounded nose, utilized
a wide bourrelet band at the top, the sabot was slightly larger than the rest of
the projectile and served as a second bourrelet, as a labor saving device, only the rings had to be accurately
machined, the rest could be left rough. A lathe
dimple in the base, and a casting sprue on the nose are usually noted. This pattern was produced late in the war as iron was
in short supply, recycled material was often used and the metal quality of these
projectiles is almost always poor. Fuze employed was a wood time fuze, Jones
Fuzes pg. 2, fuze hole is smooth and tapered, the simple to make fuze could easily be hammered into place.
Reference: Dickey & George, Field Artillery (1993 Edition), pg. 133.
Projectile measures: diameter 2.95in., length 8.0in., excluding the fuze, weight 9.4lbs. Sabot is unifired. Wood fuze is missing. Projectile is disarmed, open fuze hole exposes empty interior. Recovered: not determuined.
