  1. My 2 Cents on blackpowder Here's another case where a lot more lead is being sent the way of the target and its the mass of the ball that is doing the damage not the speed at which its traveling. Round ball firearms do have a huge drop in accuracy as range increases, however there were civil war era weapons that did enjoy accuracy nearly par with early smokeless powder cartridge guns, a ball is easier to load and less likely to jam in the barrel. Hence making a .223, 50 or so grains going really fast, and the damage of a "slow" (try to outrun it) musket ball going at 400 or so grains, comparable.
