## Cannonball Smithing calculator

The following table uses live Grand Exchange Market Watch prices to calculate the profit from Smithing cannonballs. Although the second option gives a much higher profit, consideration should be given to the extra time taken to first smelt the raw materials. Consideration should also be given to the experience you get from smelting each of them, which is 691.2 exp per inventory (with an ammo mould and 27 steel bars). It takes approximately 6 seconds to smith a steel bar into 4 cannonballs. That's 2 minutes 48 seconds for 1 full load of cannonballs (28 steel bars).
