This is filmed at a private rifle range. Cameras have zoom so objects in the background appear close, but they are thousands of yards beyond the range of these projectiles. We were sent some Minie' balls to test out. These are OLD technology but were revolutionary at the time since it extended the effective range of a musket almost 6 fold. We use modern components, making these sabot-rounds. How will they fair compared to the most modern slugs? Because they are sub-caliber rounds, they need the sabot to center them in the bore and a modern gas-seal so the smokeless powder will function. They would NOT work without these components. It would be like trying to launch a .38 out of a .45 ACP.
A big thanks as always to our channel members and Patreon members for their generous support.
