VH_man.................? what are you thinking?
Yeah basicly. wasent untill the US civil war that riffeling and bullets as we know them started comming into the frey. The first snipper riffels developed where the missassipi long riffels and had unbelevable accurcy for the time. up untill then nothing like it had been seen.

Assuming I'm right about that 11.3 g/ml bit, they are 3 grams (~50 grains)

are you saying that the lead ball i`m talking about weights 3 grams :oops:
