Good evening. found these two today. Firsts for me! Long bullet (?) is .38"-.39" wide, and about 1.08"-1.09" long. It is hexagonal. On the inside there appears to be some "thread like" lines. It almost seems to have been crimped on the back end. Maybe this rules it out as a bullet. I'm not sayin its civil war, but it does have the white oxidation. so hopefully old! Small bullet measures at .45" wide and approx. .50" long. It also appears to be hexagonal. thanks for any input

What a "turd" of a bullet.
I mean I would hate have gotten hit by it, but how crude is that.
A hex bullet to boot.
Talk about being the bad boy on the block!
All of the powder and the smoke, AND it hits a longer range target because it was one of the first designs to spin

Truly one of a kind, its twin will never be found.

The Whitworth bullet is hexagonal. They were 45 cal. and a little longer than yours, but this one looks like it has been messed with. Pulled maybe. Great bullet guys on TN. They will have it all figured out shortly. Congratulations.
