Found in the river today. Is slightly hollow, about halfway up. Thought it was a 3 ringer at first until I cleaned the mud off.

I dug a couple dozen of those out of my creek, I kept hoping the next one might be something good but just ended up with a butter box full of modern lead to melt down. lol.

Lol I can relate to that. I’ve dug some round and musket balls from the river but nothing like a 3 ringer yet. I’m guessing since they’re a little bigger and heavier they may be lower in the river.
