Schenkl projectile

The more rounded nose on this Schenkl projectile indicates that it contains case-shot.  The 3-inch Schenkl case-shot projectile has only been recovered with lead case-shot balls and black pitch matrix.  The Schenkl combination fuze was unreliable and under combat conditions was only 55% effective.  Over 53,0000 3-inch Schenkl case-shot projectiles were purchased by the Federal Ordnance Department.  Go here for additional remarks and a complete specimen.   For information about the fuze go here.
