Default Bullets, beads, or lumps of lead?

Been hunting downtown Fernandina Beach,Florida, a town with a lot of history.

Last week found a .69 caliber 3 ringer. My first. What a beast of a projectile.

Since then, have found these. I know nothing of munitions so asking for some knowledge. First,are the two round ones, musket balls? I suspect the one with the hole is a bead or bearing. Is the long one a bullet? I have received several conflicting opinions. And the short one, is it a casing from a CW pistol bullet? The insides seems to have paper in it.

Good stuff or recycling materials?
