Default Try this section

I posted this bullet in the ID my find section, nobody could ID. Try here & see if someone knows. I found this bullet in a known Civil War area where troops passed thru. From my research, I think it's a .577 Linder Carbine bullet. It appears someone started to whittle it into something before losing it. ? Any help appreciated .Hopefully the pics are attached.

I wouldn't want to call that bullet without holding it And then I'm not sure how accurate we could be. But if your bullet is in fact a .58 cal, than the Lindner .58 cal is the closest thing I see in Thomas' book.

Duggap, Thx for the reply! I too feel it's a Lindner. Just being in PA made me question it.

Did Godzilla exist in the 1800's? You can see eyes carved in.

That's a Godzilla bullet right there

Looks like an animal cow, whatever found it and chewed on it. I have found a lot of bullets with those marks. There animal teeth marks. They used a leather strap between the teeth when operating to b prevent the man from biteing his tounge.

Soldiers on the mend, while in the hospital.

Think of it as whittling, just on a lead bullet.

Thx Guys ! I thought too, it looked like someone was carving on it. Do you think it's a Linder bullet ?
