The cartridge known as "Buck and Ball" has been in use by the American military for a long time prior to the war of the rebellion. It consisted of a single conical ball with 3 .31 caliber buckshot. While it was produced by the northern arsenals, "Buck and Ball" was not mentioned in the ordnance manuals. Our "Buck and Ball" ammo box is painted blue, per the '62  Ordnance Manual for .69 cal. Round Ball. We chose blue because the buck and Ball cartridges are closer in size to the round ball. The color for buckshot boxes is red.
