You have to fill the powder into the barrel, afterwards push the bullet ball into it and then ignite the powder with an external ignition source. The invention of percussion caps obviated the need for a constantly glowing fuse. Gradually the powder with the ball was started to be wrapped in a paper wrapper until finally the entire package was put into a compact metal sleeve, where a trigger hit the ignition cap, which ignites the powder, which then accelerates the bullet out of the cartridge. However, there are also differences in weight of the bullet and its processing, as well as the amount of powder contained in a cartridge. Therefore, it is important to know which ammunition provides the perfect result for your weapon, so you can have a consistent experience when shooting and don’t have to adapt to a new manufacturer each time. Ammunition types and bullet shapes Bullets in their basic form have existed since the time before fist firearms. These balls were used mostly for military purposes or hunting, after the discovery of the black powder, these projectiles were taken and accelerated with an explosive propellant charge. This is how the first bullet came into existence. The first basic form of the projectile was the pellet. They were created in so-called shot ball towers. During the free fall the lead drops become seamless spheres. By the time they reached the water-filled basin at the bottom of the tower the balls had already solidified. In 1847 Claude-Étienne Minié developed the self-titled minié pellet, which had a conical shape and was designed to expand under pressure which resulted in much improved accuracy of the weapons. Afterwards, the ball was covered with copper, since lead begins to melt by the hot gases and enormous friction on the barrel. Copper has a higher melting point, which can prevent contamination of the barrel and deformation of the lead ball. Finally, pellets were tapered as they were able to overcome higher distances more precisely due to better aerodynamic properties.
