    You'll need to post as precise of a measurement of the diameter as you can. I'm looking at it and guessing based on that tape measure and the deformation that what you have is a fairly modern .44 or .45 hollowpoint slug.

    It is exactly 1/4" inner diameter & 3/8" outer diameter. Also from the decay it looks like it was in the ground since the early 1900's or so, Definitely not had that corrosion in recent years. I seen a lot of late 1800's Indian Head pennies & things of the sort that have similar corrosion, Modern things usually are not corroded, or just barely have a haze or discoloration to them. But all opinions are respected & are nice to ponder upon. Thanks!

    Well from what I know Whitworths were .45 cal which would would be more closely to 7/16ths of an inch..... if it's 3/8ths outside diameter that would put it more in the .38 cal range. That means my guess from the pic is off a bit. The reason I say hollow point is the scalloped edge where it expanded, I would expect that edge in a hollowpoint more than I would from a solid point bullet. Also, the patina (and this could just be the pic) seems a bit less than I would expect from a CW bullet. I don't know your soil conditions, but I'd expect it to be whiter, add to that there were no battles in or near Russelville during the Civil War, and that makes it more unlikely that you have a CW bullet.

    Sorry, that's just how I see it.
