Idaho Spud,

The ballistic pendulum was invented by Benjamin Robbins, who died in 1751. The main fact you have to keep in mind regarding the Wikipedia is you never know who's been editing it. "About 1800" is just plain sloppy on the editor's part. This Wikipedia entry has it right, though. Scroll down to the history.
