Default Another fun day of CW relic hunting! Brought "The Wolf" along today

I had my buddy Mike, AKA The Wolf, up to the Valley for some digging today and we had pretty good luck and beautiful weather!
Look for a "Digging With The Wolf" video soon on our hunt!
Here are some pics of my finds today. I found a carved gardner bullet and another odd gardner, not sure if it was just rammed hard or what.

Thanks for looking
HH

NICE! That's a whole lotta lead! The odd nose shape on that one looks like it might have been the bottom bullet in a double loaded musket. Congrats on the awesome bullets

I think your right, I never thought about that being a double loaded bullet.

It was a fun day for sure. Thanks for the invite. The video will be up soon. I hope you know I have to get an AT Pro now. My F75 did well, but your machine was definitely more stable in the funny, semi-hot ground. Way to go on all those bullets dude. That carved one is freakin sweet.

Default Those are some really great finds.

Wish I could find that many bullets in one day no matter how much digging it would take...HH.
