    Unusual Civil War Site Bullet Find

    I found this bullet at DIV XXVIII in Culpepper VA. It is a small pistol or derringer bullet. It is .17 caliber (4.5mm) and 10MM long. Any ideas on this? Is it Civil War or post?

    It Might be a Flobert round but I think it most likely is a 4.25mm Liliput. 4.25mm Liliput - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It could be for a derringer or a "Parlor" gun of some kind. There were not to many guns that small of caliber that were made out of lead. Its really neat what ever it is!!!
