thank for your answer, in the FAQs, will change the canister? for example the six gun battery ACW NAPOLEON 12# GUN have a big firepower, is it right?, in Grande Armee the firepower of the gun's canister have not that big firepower.

D,

Yes, 12pdr canister was particularly effective in the ACW.

ACW guns were lighter and more easily managed than their Napoleonic equivalents, thus probably having greater effect.

A 6 pounder Napoleonic gun would have Less than half the powder and half the weight of canister as many were brass barrelled pieces whereas a 12 pounder gun/howitzer like the Napoleon had a cast iron/steel barrel, the cast quality was far better the powder was better and I think that by this time solid shot was no longer favoured so it's probable that the bore was larger as a 12 pound shell was bigger than a 12 pound ball so the canister case would have been bigger. most of this is correct but bore size i'm not sure of.
