Default Musket Ball - Or Ball Bearing?

I am a newbie and I have no clue how to tell a musket ball from a ball bearing.

What do you think?

It was found on an old farm and it weighs 7 grams.

looks like steel so it would be a ball bearing. A musket ball would be lead.

Well I don't know how to delete this post. But I think I have figured out what this is. Only a ball bearing.
