    if you ever find cannon balls in the western states around mining areas they are likely mill balls.

    to find out if they are cannon balls or mill balls check the type of metal.

    cannonballs are iron.

    mill balls are steel and in many cases hardened AR grade steels

    cannon balls are one of a number of weights and do not match mill balls sizes.

    The real joke is i worked in the mining industry and have buckets of mill ball i use in my black powder cannons and have left many in the calif desert.

    I was told about doing the "spark test". Something about the cast iron not sparking nearly as much as the steel mill balls. I have found approx. 50 mill balls and can tell you if you put one to the grind stone....they spark considerably. I do not have an authenticated cannon ball to test, nor would I sacrifice it to satisfy my curiosity.

    Those are mill balls. A high consumable product in the fine grinding process of rock or ores.
