Bullet ID

While going through my bullet collection I came across this one and can't correctly ID it. As far as I can tell there are 6 (maybe 7?) rifling marks and a small ridge around the top where the bullet starts its taper. There is also one crimp groove around the bottom. The pictures give the rest of the information. As always, thanks for any and all help.

50 caliber black powder rifle bullet most likely. Probably no real way for the common nut to identify what rifle shot it or how old. I will let those lob lead take the lead here tho......

I was told that it is a swaged bullet (Machine made) that was fired in a smaller caliber gun.

Uh, I suppose a half inch diameter bullet weighing 538 grs(ish) would be a smaller caliber gun. COMPARED TO A HOWLITZER.......
Swaged, possible........which makes it more modern if machine swaged.
