  1. Interestingly, breechloading artillery only really started to get big once modern metallurgy got capable enough to cast an iron cannon without any faults; an iron cannon with faults, especially with a weak point (the breech) becomes a literal bomb and would generally kill the entire crew. Making cannons to such a high tolerance was both EXTREMELY costly and time consuming. This is why, even though breechloaders existed by the time of the American Civil War, the majority of cannons were still bronze muzzle loaders, since bronze had a much greater elasticity when under pressure and was much less likely to explode, killing the crew.

  2. Actually there's plenty of examples from the 1800's of breach loading firearms.
    And even some rarities from the 1700's.

    I'd recommend you watch forgotten weapons, Ian has a heck tom of videos on old firearms there.

  3. No muzzle loader ever had "cartridges " the bullet and propellant were separate components, kept separately and loaded separately.
    Most breech loader canon's still load the projectile separately from the propellant but atleast the propellant gets its own container and goes in container and everything.

  4. My grandfather was in the korean war as an artillery gunner he said good luck to your hearing there was no earplugs before firing youd open your mouth wide to close the gap in your ear. Natural earplugs

  5. One note: “Caliber” has a different meaning when discussing artillery. In small arms, caliber refers only to bore internal diameter.
    In Artillery, it refers to a relational measure of bore vs. Length.

  6. Not entirely true actually
    Breach loading cannons were a thing even during the medieval era where a steel chamber has two handles and a hole in the middle,
    The cannon has pat of the back cut out so a canister could be placed inside of the cut out, whilst the hole filled with the cannon ball and powder is lined up with the barrel, the canister is held in place by using triangular pieces of wood to ensure a tight fit, however cut to their complexity and poor manufacturing process’s, it left the cannon either under powered where most of the gas would escape via deformations between the canister and cannon, as well as the fact that if the canister is miss aligned to the barrel of the cannon, they had a nasty habit of exploding

  7. Excellent video except one very small detail. Muzzleloaders typically don't use a "cartridge or shell" you had to load each component separately. Typically a pre-measured amount of powder either in a bag or separate, than a wadding of some type, and then the projectile.

  8. Hz. Jesus Christ is not God. neither is Allahu Teala's son. He is one of the Prophets of Allahu Teala and there is no God but Allahu Teala
