Re: M1906 fencing musket

The fencing musket has a 24" barrel, not 32". I swaged 500 grain pure lead paper patch bullets to a wad cutter form and than sized to .449". I got 1 lb. 4 oz. into the barrel. It would be impossible to get more in. This came to 5 or 6 oz. short of the M1903 Springfields weight with a bayonet.
