    I may have found my first Civil War era bullet. Two ringer or maybe a three ringer?

    Not sure, but this bullet may be Civil War era. Could be a two ringer or a three ringer? I find a lot of musket balls, but never find three ringers. Let me know what you think.

    It's pretty flattened, but I do see at least two rings. The base is flat and it weighs 22.96 grams, which converts to 354 grains. Give me your opinions on this one.

    This bullet is close in appearance and weight, but I'm not positive. Colt revolving rifle bullet:

    Not sure what it is but I can see rifling marks on the base ring in the last picture

    It's tough to tell from the picture, but I hope you are right. Can you tell if there are vertical lines in the grooves/candelores? If so than it will be newer than CW.
    Cool find

    No vertical lines in the grooves. I find a lot of .45 bullets that are from the late 1800's or early 1900's and they always have the vertical lines in the grooves.
