Hello, can anyone help me in identifying this bullet that I had found today. Just wondering if it is CW era or just something modern.

Thank You

Matt

Yeah. I wasn't sure. I have never found a bullet like this and ID ing is actually a little tougher than I anticipated.

Thank You

good morning Truckin is prob.correct. The lubricating groove is rolled and there is a crimping groove for holding it inside of a cartridge case.

However, since that period had soo many experimental and odd combinations, it needs more data to id it. Meanwhile go to ----->
