    CW camp lead

    Saturday was a beautiful day in VA... so I decided to get in a hunt before the snow arrived Sunday.... Apparently the wildlife thought it was a great day to be out too... saw a coyote and 6 wild turkeys before I fired up the detector (not in the same field, that would have been even more interesting!)

    I love seeing those 69s in the hole! These four were within 20 feet of each other.

    Not sure what the brass piece is - a rifle lever, perhaps

    And the little brass loop looks familiar, but I can't seem to place it....

    Thanks for looking.

    No brass rifle levers I've ever heard of, but it looks like it could be a broken piece off a muzzle loading trigger guard.
    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.

    Re: CW camp lead

    Nice finds. I've only found ONE 3 ringer and that was turned into a fishing sinker which made it interesting. Pretty weird I only find like the small colt bullets, spencers and I think the sharps bullets. Hunting in Winchester, VA...don't know if that has anything to do with it.
