Which do you think was more effective on the battlefield.
What range? I have seen buck and ball at close range WOW
I'd say within 70-100 yards to be fair.
First 25 B and B after that mini ball
That's a darn good answer, and if it were only buckshot I might fully agree Buckeye, but with a ball... Take it out to 50 yards; then Minie.
Being b&b is a smoothbore load, would it have loaded a little faster?
Compared to "ball and patch", for, say, a Kentucky or Pennsylvania rifle, B&B is MUCH faster. However, the minie is smaller than bore diameter, is expanded on firing- they can load pretty quickly.
I see what you mean.
