gatling guns

Was poking around on the net the other night and was surprised to learn that the Gatlings at San Juan and Kettle Hill, Parker's Gatlings, were .30-40 Cal!!!!! I had thought for a long time that they were .45-70.

While I was on the Gatling gun binge, I noted that the heavy "1-inch" Gatlings produced just after the Civil War, had a "buck & ball" ctg, as well as what may have been a true "cannister" cartridge.

Thought all that was pretty neat, and I learned something.
