Does anybody have any experience with these reproductions  ?  Specifically either the Enfield or the Cook& Brothers.  Looking for the proper Minie doing some research it appears they like the .577 two groove thick base but any first hand experience would be appreciated.

I am familiar with Parker Hale Enfields. One of the finest Civil War reproductions available. My response would be to start with, if you intend to do a Confederate impression with your choices? Then I would say to narrow it down, you might choose a particular unit and then discover if either one of those would be period correct for that impression. If you merely want to shoot a Civil War musket as I recall the "two ring" .577 mini was the common round for the .58 cal, Confederate muskets. If hunting is your aim, I always commented while teaching muzzle loading section of hunter's ed that a Civil War musket is an excellent choice for elk, especially in inclement weather......really didn't answer what you were asking....but wanted to give you something!  t up
