    To complete a cutaway model I am looking for 25 lead balls approximately 17mm in diameter.

    Thanks in advance,
    Regards, DJH

    Moulds available on ebay for fishing weights. Check incase I'm wrong but I believe a 1oz ball weight is about 18mm diameter.

    Is there a black powder shooting club near you, or ask at your local gun store, someone may have a .69” ball mould. (17.5mm)

    Pedersoli make swaged lead ball for muzzle loaders in many dufferent sizes. I don’t know if there is a distributor in the Netherlands, but in UK they are available from Henry Krank.

    Thanks a lot for all the valuable info guys.
    One of the Dutch NVBMB members contacted me that he would cast 25 balls 17,1 mm diameter for me, so for now the froblem seems solved.
    With regards, DJH
    @ Glevum; regretfully No, they have to fit inside a 38mm dia brass pipe, three arrayed in a circle. According to ACAD these balls are than 17,2mm dia maximum.
