    CW camp lead and bullets 1/23/2010!!!

    Got out in the rain today and went to a small CW camp on my neighbors that I have hunted to death. But I did mannage to come home with a little more lead. It may just be me but the minie ball in the second pic is very strange to me, if anyone has any idea on what type it is please let me know. I am going to post them on what is it.
    Thanks for lookin.

    The bullet in the second picture looks like a Gardner bullet. Gardner's were used by Confederates. I posted some camp lead just a little while ago.

    Neither bullet is a Gardner. The first bullet I don't know but the second is a sharps carbine. Does it look like the first bullet could have had the rings partially shave off? In the pics is looks like the rings are a bit narrower that the base also the rings don't look like they are very deep. The bullet sort of looks like a CS teat base. There are some strange bullets dug in Arkansas though. American digger magazine did an article on bullet dug in Arkansas. If no one on here can help maybe they can

    No it is molded like that. And it doesnt really have rings, it just looks like it gets smaller in the middle, like a small clamp squeezed it there. I have dug about three types of odd bullets and sold one for $300, it was a cosmopolitan type II.

    I Wish I could help you on that bullet but I have no idea. I dug some 3 ringers in a SC, here in VA, that were smaller at the rings than at the nose and the base. They had 3 distinct rings and were only about a .50 or so though. I dug about 20 there and that is the only place I ever dug them. You dug a cosmopolitan? WOW I've seen them but never dug any.
