    Left. A new one from an new bullet mould, middle is an .69 cal english bullet for rifled ex smoothbore Enfield rifles of 1846? design and the right is an .577 Enfield bullet for the 1856 ? design. The english Minie bullets had wood or clay pegs to improve expansion and prevent deformation on transport.
