    If our fingers are about the same size it may be from a .25 ACP.

    c.1905 to present.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Is the bullet lead? A .25 ACP would be a metal jacketed round. To identify it, you really should clean it well, weigh it and measure it with a micrometer. It appears to be a fired pistol bullet, but it could be .22, .25 or .32. My guess would be a .32 S&W and the bullet should weigh 70-some grains. The age is impossible to determine. For instance, I load and shoot bullets cast from a mold made in 1877.
