A2589...Rifled artillery projectile, Broun design, Confederate manufacture, solid bolt, long pattern with bourrelet rings and blunt nose, copper ring sabot, Brooke rifle, 7 in. 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 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. The top is only slightly rounded, this flat top was designed to deliver maximum impact against the Federal ironclads.
