Musket Balls such as these were used during the 1700's and 1800's. These lead balls, .69 caliber in size, were commonly used during the Revolutionary War to the Civil War. The most common gun used to fire these balls was a smoothbore flintlock musket which could be fire at a rate of 2-4 times per minute. This gave way to the "Cap Lock" musket and the conical "Minnie" ball during the Civil War.
These reproduction musket balls are approximately 1/2" in size and not recommended for small children.
