"Thank you everybody for the information this should give me an idea of how to construct it but what type of color of paint should i use for a 58.cal menniball with 80 grains and a munition depo in ohio?"
The 1861 Ordnance Manual called for "Olive" to be the color for .58 expanding ball "packing boxes." Even though "olive" is more of a concept than an actual universal color chip, based on how exacting lads mixed the components specified in the Ordnance Manual or not. Oil based paint is getting harder and harder to find. Plus modern "olives" are a different shade of green than the CW version.
Paint stores might be able to mix up an approximastion. Some lads use this "formula" for them to mix: B 232, C 2Y40, F 18, W 1Y36 but I have never tried it.
Federal arsenals are a longer discussion. Plus under the Federal system, arsenals and depots often shipped here and there, so it wa snot always true tat the closest state troops to a particular arsenal always got ammunition from that arsenal.
A small Federal arsenal was ordered to be built in Columbus, Ohio in 1862 to replace the one being run by the State of Ohio June 1861- September 1863 . It opened late in 1863 early 1864.
Ramsey ordered it closed in February 1864 and its material transferred to Allegheny Arsenal.
Ohio State Laboratory packing boxes were stenciled under the lid "COLUMBUS" over "MONTH and YEAR"' over "OHIO in an oval stencil.
An aside, 80 grains was not the service load for .58 expanded ball amunition.
