    This is just for fun.

    Attached are pictures of the business end of two gunbarrels.
    Who made them?
    Who owned them?
    Aprox. when were they made?

    And just for the heck of it, the one answer I do NOT know:
    WHY??

    This, by the way, is flower power I BELIEVE in!!

    Early attempt to increase knockdown power of projectiles. American Rifleman had an article on them many years ago. European. Flintlock and eighteenth century as I recall. Very expensive. Can you visualize casting bullets for this? Wonder what the recoil was like.

    I think the article included a couple of other barrel patterns.

    Someone on the Black Powder Forum might have some information.

    Trouble 45-70 is closest.

    Made between 1631 and 1653 for the King of Denmark by Danish gunsmith from Elsinore, Andreas Neidhardt.
    They, along with the bullet molds, are in the Tohjus Museet in Copenhagen.

    Indeed - they fired a single projectile of that weird shape.

    And there are several other odd-ball patterns.

    A ballistic gel test with one of these would also be interesting -
