It has been a long time since a have got to go relic hunting. And it has been a while since I have posted on here. I have been super busy with work and other things. I had a vacation day I had to take so I took it to go detecting. Hunted this spot for a little over a hour and it’s going to be a good one. I detected a lot before I found this spot. I walked for over two miles to get here. That is why only I only detected this spot for a short time. I found a Prussian 69 caliper and several round balls and a Minnie and a enfield. Also found a button with R. Jackson and Ind on it. I need help with if on it and the long lead piece. Also found a bunch of melted lead which is always a good sign. I also need a I’d on the bullet that has been modified with a square hole

I figured out what the square hole is for in the bullet. It’s for removing the nipple on the gun I believe

Awesome hunt. I have some with the square hole that were used as nipple protectors.
