    The one I shoot most often is an old Uberti .36 Remington revolver..... it's built on a .44 frame, so the cylinder/chamber walls are extraordinarily thick (very handy for experimenting with homebrew powders).

    I was thinking that some vintage .22 scopes (long straight tubes, no objective or eyepiece bells) superficially resemble 1800s scopes, and might not appear so "out of place" on a muzzle-loader. However, you would need to mount the scope so the...

    Agreed. I suspect that the word "ball" was commonly used in those days in reference to any type of projectile, spherical or not. I noticed that the loading instructions for the Sharps carbine also mentioned "the ball". Not sure what to think...
