Spencer carbine bullets from the run next to a Cavalry camp. Tough summer conditions for detecting in Va so I took a swim.

Those are in great shape.

Bet those troops wearing wool outfits desired a swim now and then too!
(Not that wool is bad.)

Thanks. Yep it's a nice surprise to find a Civil War bullet that still shines, these rarely survive intact from the soil.

Va. Dave, Congrat's on the saves of the Spencer Carbine bullets. Like said, it's rare to find them intact. These look pristine. Of all the carbine bullets I have, I only have a few with minimal casing left attached to the lead. Did you find these with the AT Gold? Well Done.

I like finding ammo and is a clear indication of the period of time you are hunting in
