Bullet Ball Instructions

Understanding calibers, gauge numbers and bullet sizes can be challenging, yet their significance cannot be ignored when purchasing ammunition. While these numbers may seem innocuous enough at first glance, their implications could have serious implications on your ammunition selection process.

Conduct an experiment by dropping a large ball without exerting any force; observe its rebound height. Repeat this test several times.


Bullet balls’ sizes are determined by how much they elongate when under pressure, returning to their original shapes more readily when pressure is removed than being compressed too tightly into sharp pointed points. Pushing too hard into too sharp a point could cause cracking or deformation; for this reason it is recommended that bullet balls should be smaller than both their jacket ID and core seating punch, located near the mouth of their jackets.

When Claude-Etienne Minie created his Minie ball in 1849, little could he have predicted the devastating impact this small and compact ammunition would have in the American Civil War twelve years later. With its hollow-based design proving more effective and cost effective than previous ammunition; making manufacture simpler.


When Claude-Etienne Minie created the minie ball in 1849, he may not have anticipated the magnitude of destruction it would cause on Civil War battlefields. Yet closer examination reveals more than just its role as an aid weapon: this bullet also offers insight into medical science of its time as well as revealing an entirely different scale of mortality.

Bullet balls can be made of various materials, but most commonly employ copper, steel and lead. These materials are cost-effective, readily available, and melt at a relatively low temperature – all of which make them easy to work with. These materials also elongate or flatten under pressure before returning back to their original shapes when released – an effect which can be exploited to create pointed tips on bullets.


Weight of a bullet ball is an integral factor when selecting a bullet ball as it determines its force when traveling through the air. While casual plinking may not require careful selection of weight-bearing balls, choosing an effective bullet ball for more serious shooting may depend on its core seating punch or standard punch which come equipped with core swage die.


Consumers take great pride in keeping bullet balls durable. The company behind them has taken care to design products with durability in mind, including high-quality play and long-term performance in mind. Furthermore, bullet balls are easy to store and transport – an important consideration when traveling or attending outdoor events like summer picnics with this game. When Claude-Etienne Minie invented the Minie ball in 1844 he likely never imagined its devastating effect on Civil War battlefields not just in terms of casualties but in scope and severity of wounds inflicted upon combatants using this weapon; its devastating effect was felt not just in casualties alone but in scope and severity of wounds inflicted upon its targets by this weapon – an impact felt by all sides alike!


Price of bullet balls depends on the projectile used. For instance, one 9mm bullet (projectile) may cost $0.79 each piece. To access pricing information online for these bullets you can search “bullet”, select a type and click through to the results page.

Bulletball remains an engaging and enjoyable activity that appeals to both abled-bodied and differently-abled players alike.
