|The National Civil War Artillery Association does live fire events at an Army Artillery Range in Virginia. The sound crew for the Gettysburg and Gods and Generals movies were there to record the sound. The best way to describe it is like a loud crack compared to the loud boom that you get with a reenactment piece firing 9 or 10 oz. shot.
The group I belong to use a 3 inch Ordnance Rifled piece, and when you are next to the gun, it's not bad, but being down range or on the opposite side of a field, it can be defening.
