TomBob Outdoors ITX Lead-Free Muzzleloading Round Balls

posted on April 15, 2014

Likely the only lead-free muzzleloading-specific round balls, TomBob Outdoors’ American-made ITX 10 g/cc balls are constructed from materials with no significant traces of lead; in fact, the balls are made from the same material as ITX shot, which is USFWS-approved for use in waterfowl hunting.

The projectiles are tougher than lead, and thus penetrate deeper than a comparable ball made from lead, yet provide a close-to-lead trajectory and will not harm barrel steel. Available in .32, .45, .50, .54 and .60 cal., TomBob Outdoors’ ITX muzzleloading round balls are sold in 8- to 30-count packages (depending on caliber) for $12-$17.
