Apex Barrel - military application?

[BRAIN FART WARNING]

Do you guys think there could be a military application of an apex barrel?
It is hard to get a sphere to fly straight, and it is hard to get a rifled bullet to bend.
Could spherical projectiles sometimes be advantageous for the military? These projectiles may go around bunkers, corners, or into foxholes using something like the apex barrel technology. It's easy to imagine projectiles ranging from 68cal to baseball size.

The bending of the projectile path may require a low velocity like a paintball gun or a baseball pitcher. A gun powder explosion may be too much force to get a radical bend.

It would be possible I think, but you wouldn't get that much of a change as you do with a bullet. It would probably be very little of a trajectory change, therfore useless.

I think a Nikita Missile is more plausible than an apex barreled musket.
