Ammunition costs and notes


Black Powder comes in three grades, fine "priming" powder, coarser "charging" powder and very coarse "cannon" powder.  It sells for $2 per pound regardless of type.

Standard powder kegs weigh about 100lbs, with a volume of 1.25 cubic feet. There is sufficient powder in one keg for about 4,000 musket loads or about 6,000 to 8,000 pistol loads. A typical musket load is 150 to 200 grains.

There are 40 shots to a pound for a musket, musketoon, rifle or blunderbuss. 80 shots to a pound for a pocket pistol, 75 for a belt pistol, 65 for a horse pistol, 50 for an Arquebus.


Shot, most people cast their own and a firearm comes with a mold to make bullets for the weapon (one at a time). A musket typically gets between 10 and 20 shots per pound of lead. A pistol 15 to 25. (a cubic foot of pure lead weighs 712.5lbs.)


Igniters

Match, their are two varieties, quick and slow.

Quick Match is used as a fuse. Its speed can vary from 1 foot per minute to 4 yards per minute.

Slow Match is used to keep fire handy. It burns at 4 inches per hour.

Both varieties weigh 1lb per 5 yards.

A pound of match costs $10.


Flints, A flint is good for around 12 to 15 shots. A keg of flints weighs 70lbs and holds about 10,000 flints.


Pyrites (used in Wheellocks) are a little heavier and less durable. One is good for about 8 to 12 shots. A 100lb keg holds about 50,000 firings.


Wadding and Cartridge Paper

Wadding is either cloth, paper or leather, it is placed over the charge to provide a seal, and over the shot to keep it in place.

When paper cartridges are used, a bundle weighs about 40lbs and occupies a cubic foot, it is sufficent for 16,000 cartridges. Old sail cloth is often used for wadding.


Costs

Sufficient powder, lead, wadding and igniters for 100 shots costs $18

The bullets must be cast by the user.  Powder is loose, cartridges must be made if desired.
