Default Help identify old bullets

Heyo! I found these bullets years ago in a creek in my old yard in rural Chester Sc. Because of its history with the Civil War I thought they could maybe be Confederate bullets but I havent been able to find anything similar, Civil War or newer. 😅 Any help would be greatly appreciated. Someone was most likely just shooting for fun, but I'm definitely curious as to how old they could be.

Those are not civil war. Just how modern I'm not sure.

If you could measure the diameter with calipers and weigh them in grains, it would be easier to figure out.

They look like modern handgun bullets.

They definitely donít look civil war to me. But like was said above if you could measure them with calipers it would be easier to ID.

Hard to tell from those photos.
Best guess is modern jacketed hollow point handgun bullets.
Definitely made after the 1970's if it has a jacket.
