Default Percussion Caps???

Not sure, because they are so large, but I think these are old percussion caps. Any idea as to what they are or would go to? Thanks

That is what they are... You can see the rifling on them they were most likely hollow points and they get that way from expanding.


Here is an example:

Definitely copper bullet jackets. One on left is definitely hollow point. Modern.

Looks like copper jackets.

If you need a reference for primers, I have some here.

Lots of correct answers on this one. The jackets are just missing the lead inside.

Good ID everyone!

Put "CRAPPY" in front of bullet. The jacket of a good bullet won't separate from the lead.
