44531Re: .69 Calibre Musket Balls ...something to note
- Nov 4, 2011This is from my understanding of records, documents and archaeological finds, but I may well be wrong.
That being said, I believe US musket balls were roughly .65 cal (give or take a .002, .003 or .004) and the rounds for .75 Cal weapons were .69 (give or take as well). SO if doing a study on wounds from a .69 cal musket the .65 cal balls are the ones to use.
Just Saying...May be wrong.. but I think I am right (and thats all that counts to me :)
