Even More Christmas'y Stuff
BLACK POWDER REVOLVER BUYING GUIDE
"A cap and ball revolver, as the name implies, fires lead round balls. These are generally several thousandths of an inch oversized and are used without a patch. When pressed into the cylinder they are swaged to the exact size. While balls are the primary fodder, in some situations, conical bullets can be used. However, for the sheer ease of loading and inexpensive shooting, lead round balls make up the bulk of projectiles for cap and ball enthusiasts."
