    Bowling balls looked to go 700-900 yards or so. They didn’t group well though! Thought some may find the photos interesting.

    They use like an acetylene bottle they cut the top off of. And the one i seen used 2lbs of ffg and launched the ball smooth out of sight- past 1000yds

    "Fill to the neck with Titegroup"

    In all seriousness, that's an interesting question.

    I think dusty is pretty close with the 2# ffl— makes me wonder about how it must have been in the cannon deck of one of the old (now) war ships with all the cannons firing.

    Can you imagine the smoke from 270 combined cannons firing for 1 hour at Gettysburg’s Pickett’s Charge. Talk about smoke, Yazzzza.
