Hey gang,

Took a 20 minute "hunt break" in my backyard just now and found a bullet fragment. We have lots of game here so it's unsurprising if it's that, but even to my really amateur eye, it looks like a handgun bullet, doesn't it? Not a hunting rifle?

I'm in an area settled in the 1600's so it could be WAY old or just recent. I have zero, zip, nada NO idea.


Thanks in advance.

(P.S. Humorous note: My house was built only in 1980, but every couple who lived in it thus far ended up divorced... Wonder if it's from an argument!!!)
