    Henry Rifle Bullet And More

    Got back to my new spot today and it didnít disappoint. Actually found one mini lying on top of the ground. Also found this bullet that I think could be a Henry Rifle bullet. The black powder caused the casing to rot, but I did recover both halves. What are your thoughts on this bullet?

    I was comparing it to what I found on the internet. But I could be mistaken.

    It's a rim fire, can't really tell the size, but I would say a very good chance.

    Henry was chambered in the .44 and the .45 Colt,look's like compared to the .58's it's pretty damn close to a .44......Nice dig

    I concur it is most likely a Henry. That's a nice find.

    I guess it could be something else, but several others here seem to think itís a Henry as well. What do you think it is?

    Just another rimfire case and bullet.

    If you knew the men fighting in that area were using Henry's, or Winchester's or whatever then I could see the relationship back to Henry.

    I'm not trying to create an issue, I thought there was a link back to Henry I didnt know about. And maybe there is, you never know unless you ask

    Look and see of the is an "H" stamped in the center. That would be a good sign. It wouldn't be a Winchester if it's Civil War time period. Winchester's first gun didn't come out until 1866. Gary

    I found this online Todd, apparently the earliest Henryís didnít have the H stamp on the base. My bullet doesnít have that stamp either.
