Hope this is the correct forum.  I just wanted to say that I have an Original Civil War Era Burnside Carbine coming.  I think it is in quite good shape from the look of it on the vendor's website.  I will probably shoot it a couple of times just to try it out.  I have found an online vendor that make cartridges for it.

There are several vendors who sell Burnside cases, including Dixie for starters.  I've used mine for over 50 years and it shoots well and is easy to clean. I have used plastic, aluminum and brass as well as Dixie's "gas collar" which I started with and still have.

380VI,
    Thanks for the information.  I am looking at Lodgewood Mfg.  They have both brass and nylon Burnside cases and I think that is who I will be going with.  I will check on Dixie's cases also.

I shot CAC a few year back and wound up timing for the Plainsman side match.  One of the competetors was shooting a Burnside.  Did rather well as I recall.
