Reposting to correct site. Need help with this bullet and what appears to be just the base to some. Bullet seems to have a small piece of brass cartridge attached to bottom. Of the 3 bases, one is solid and the other two are hollowed out. Any ideas appreciated

The largest bullet appears to be a civil war era US .44 Henry Repeating Rifle bullet. It had a copperbrass cartridge, which as very often happens with excavated Henry cartridges, got corroded to bits in the ground due to the blackpowder inside it.

The .22 bullets can be from anytime. But that caliber was very-very rare in the civil war era, so yours are most probably from later.

The odd pieces of lead look a soldier, or somebody, was whittling on lead bullets to pass the time. But they are too small for me to be certain about that.
