Rated 1 out of 5 by lewbowski maybe for rifle. not revolver. No good for .32 bp revolvers. too loose. Great sling shot ammo and now that I have 400 sitting around with no other use. February 7, 2013

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bill3Pyro Great for Ball-milling These hardened lead balls are great to use as media in a ball mill. Be sure to run them in through the mill and discard the first batch of powder to clean the balls. March 26, 2010

A:You can do a google search for "balls to the pound". This was one of the ways caliber was referred to in the 18th c (ie 30 balls to the pound was approx a 54 cal). However, be prepared to have a calculator if you want ounces because most info is shown in grams.
Details:44 cal shows .451 and .454 sizes why are there two and which do I need?
A:Uberti and Pietta pistols and other pistol makers some time come with diffrent size cylinders and bore dia.
If one does not fit tight in the cyl. use the larger size. To tight use the smaller size. There should always be a small lead sliver left when you load the ball into the Cyl. hopes this helps
A:Look up your gun manufacturer and model online and it should tell which size ball for your specific model.

A:It would be nice if different diameters were offered in the other calibers.
Just like modern guns, you need to find out what shoots best with your gun. It would be wise to try diiferent diameters of round ball, different thickness of patching material as well as different amounts of powder. I have been hunting with a .54 cal flintlock for 15 yrs now. To date I get the best groups with a .530 ball, 70 grains of black powder (a traditionalist) and .16 patch.
Try both balls and vary your patch thickness and grains of powder. You can shoot all day and it won't cost you much. Shoot (2) 5 shot groups of each and find out which does best with your gun. Be mindful of ball and patch thickness. The greater they are the harder to load without cleaning. Good luck and have fun.
Details:I Have a 30 Cal. Muzzleloading one Shoot Pistol I Can Not Find Any 30 Cal. Round Balls. Is There any other ammo That Will Work in My Pistol.
I Know That I use A Different ammo In My Muzzleloading Rifle.
