I have often wondered what would be the difference between a Foster Slug from 12 gauge vs period. Does anyone know the Ballistics of the Minnie Ball?
FPS and energy? Last edited by Hashbrowns; at PM. I get best accuracy from my 58 cal is with a charge of FFG behind a gr. Minnie The 12 ga factory can give fps for 1-oz.
In wildlife areas where either are allowed and I hunt deer; for me the Minnie is considerably more accurate than either the sabot or foster. If shooting at a lion or large bear at 20 yards, I'd probably use the shorter barrel 12 ga slug gun.

Slug Sweat - GRVGLTCHR* - Volume 4 (File) stuff to contemplate. The Minnies loaded faster than the patched ball, But the velocity and accuracy was considerably better with a well patched round ball. RB can be loaded faster, while the soft skirt of the minnie ball limits the pressure than can be loaded.
If pressures get to high on a minnie ball, the skirt ruptures at exiting the muzzle and makes the round unstable and super poor accuracy results. I think the present day US rounds that are light and fast, made to be unstable and destroy flesh non-convention compliant do less damage to troops.
Sad thing the Dark Desires - Midnight Configuration - Dark Desires War Sorry for the run on I'm a civil War historian. If the Minnie Ball actually engaged the barrel threads making it spin, why can't we make a Foster Slug fired from a threaded barrel, making it spin and not use Sabot slugs? But, we all know that if sabots cost more, and the gun rag writers, paid by sabot ads; then they must be better.
My range experience seems to be that rifled shotgun guys use scopes. And they are comparing their accuracy to no sight smooth bore shotguns! I shoot a Hes Every Thing To Me - We Three Kings - We Three Kings 20 ga single smooth borewith Foster slugs it seems to shoot about the same as the guys at the range sighting in the expensive rifled sabot shooters.
The recovered 58 Minnies I have shot, all show rifling. As said, must be all lead, no alloy, to upset on firing and take rifling. Hashbrowns likes this. What would be the equivalent size of a 12 gauge 3" Mag Foster Slug vs a Minnie ball.
What is the closest size of a Minnie ball to a Foster slug of the before mentioned? I haven't ever seen them for sale here in the states.
I now that they sure do work good on hogs out to around 75 yards. These slugs are for smooth bores and they are so accurate out to around 75 yards that I had a scope on my pump and it would put all 6 shots into a 6" circle, I took the scope off so I could get on target a lot faster.
They are a different looking slug and harder, the Gordon system wad has a finger that sticks up inside the slug and force's it to expand against the barrel when fired ,it works great also they are heavier, harder and faster than American made foster style slugs.
I was shooting federal tribal slugs until Slug Sweat - GRVGLTCHR* - Volume 4 (File) shot these Italian big game slugs. Last edited by alientrainwreck; at PM. What I was looking for in the way of comparison from the 12 ga slug size as opposed to what size Minnie ball size close as possible. I want to shoot as close as possible a Minnie Ball Musket round from a shotgun shell in a riflied barrel. Size comparison from closest size from Minnie ball to slug size in diameter.
What would happen if I fired a. As said the minnie base is conically hollow, skirt. And the slug would need to be soft enough to properly expand. That given, I'd think a progressive or gain twist barrel would let the slug spin slowly at first, then accelerate its rotational velocity to avoid shearing off the newly cut threads on the slug.
Just some thoughts over morning coffee! What if we used the same wadding from the shotgun shell to house the Minie ball? At any rate were going to a well known YouTuber to test this.

You could cut the collar off, using just the base of the wad underneath the Minnie. I don't know of any commercial. You might get someone to machine some special. I've never machined lead on a lathe! You can buy. Minnie Ball that big nowadays. But I have heard of people Slug Sweat - GRVGLTCHR* - Volume 4 (File) a. I've heard that they are pretty accurate out to around 35 to 50 yards and puts hogs down with authority.
You might want to Slug Sweat - GRVGLTCHR* - Volume 4 (File) the design parameters of a Minnie ball. It is designed to be undersized so it loads easily from a muzzle loader Muzzleloaders whether smooth bore or rifled are uniform in diameter The skirt is made, primarily, to seal the undersized bullet in the bore, and secondarily to contact the rifling. A shotgun wad would do the sealing thing in a shell load.
BUT the shotgun wad will also seal the high pressure from contacting the cone shaped hollow in the Minnie. Tags minnie ball. BB code is On. Smilies are On. Trackbacks are On. Pingbacks are On.
