    Any of you gun buffs know a good place or person selling cannon shell or mini balls from the civil war? I can find a lot online and E-bay but I'm not sure who to trust. I'd imagine it's not that hard to replicate a mini ball. I see discriptions such has dug up on the Gettysburg battle field, Vicksburg etc but I'm leary of some sellers. Maybe someone here knows a guy that knows guy?? Ha!

    I would check with re-enactors for replicas of cannon balls or for a Minnie bullet. Competitive shooters of replica firearms most likely cast their own bullets from molds.

    Too bad this wasn't brought up earlier this week. This weekend our conservati on club had a gun show, and I spoke with a Civil War re-enactor who asked if
    we had any cannon shooters as members. The cannon shooters I'm aware of go
    up to Grayling, MI to shoot targets up to 2500 meters.
