I have been sitting here watching ballistics testing done on all kinds of ammo, and the weird things turned into ammo, done to existing ammo. Well has anyone ever attempted a Split Ball? or crossed cut ball? I know I know the stuff that crosses my mind in boredom.

Read an article in American Riflemen years ago written during the Indian Wars period. A couple of the soldiers were low on ammo (waiting to be restocked). They decided to put saw marks in a few cannon balls to get a split ball effect. It didn't work and they managed to split the cannon barrel after a few rounds.
