Hi Tom,

This would be an interesting round for your muskets: this is the 75 calibre buck and ball with one tier of five buckshot on top of a musket ball. In an exchange of vollies between formed infantry at 100m or less this could be devastating. The addition of the buckshot would increase the number of projectiles going down range from 500 for an average battalion of foot to 3000.

They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
What God abandoned, these defended,
And saved the sum of things for pay.
