By the end of the war the Parrot, Rodman, and U.S. Ordnance rifles were in heavy use, and pretty much all they used were shells.

In addition, for Naval use, the shell guns had largely replaced the roundball guns by the middle of the war for new construction.
That's all true but through the entire war the most commonly used artillery piece was the Napoleon smoothbore.
