Those sound like 20 grain wad only loads. This vid shows how they work and gives some history on them.

Entirely unrelated but there's a super cool video of an original bronze 12 pound Napoleon firing canister. It's super cool because you can hear the bell tone of the bronze barrel every time it fires.

I didn't want to hijack your thread with it. it's a longish video. They're doing research on the effect of canister. The best tones start at 3 minutes 54 seconds.
