1803-41/51 (General)

All the Norwegian /41/51 conversions have a pointy tige or pillar in the bottom of the chamber. The jäger rifles were loaded with a patched roundball in their original flintlock configuration, and also after the conversion to percussion after 1841. When they were converted to pillar-breech rifles after 1851 they were loaded with the 18 bore kammerlader bullet. The paper cartridge was slightly different from that of the kammerlader though. The load was 71 grains of rifle powder, as opposed to 96 grains in the kammerlader.
