32 Caliber Civil War Bullets?

Hunted a Ghost Town today about a 1/2 mile from a Civil War Battlefield and found these two 32 caliber bullets. They have the right patina for the era, what do you think? Thanks for your comments!

The one knows the left, no. It is just after, metallic cartridge. The one on the right looks like it. Is that ab
ramrod mark on the nose or is it a cast flaw?

I never noticed that, could be a ramrod mark. I'm definitely no expert. That's why I put it on here. Are these pistol bullets I suspect? I did suspect the left one was after the Civil War, just looked different than others that I'd found. Thanks for your expertise Ironman200081!!!

Yes, both are for pistols. Your instincts were correct on the left bullet. Keep searching that area!
