On the morning of July 11, 1804 Burr and Hamilton each fired a shot from a .56 caliber dueling pistol. Burr was unharmed; Hamilton fell to the ground mortally wounded. He died the next day.
Instead of reviving Burr's political career, the duel helped to end it. Burr was charged with murder. After his term as vice president ended, he would never hold elective office again. And his next plot to gain power would end with charges of treason.
