Z2857     Sectioned Federal 12lb. Case-Shot Ball with Type III William's Cleaner Bullets

Description: Excellent sectioned shell that was cast to hold a scarce Wright Fuse. This style shell slightly differed from the conventional Bormann shell. The Bormann shell has a threaded stepped lip on the top where this example is angled. This example still retains the yellow sulfur matrix and you can clearly see a total of 11 bullets of which 9 are definitely .58 Type III William's cleaner bullets.
