Bullet find...

Post by Adam46 » Sun Mar 19, 2017 4:59 pm

Found this on a beach visit this afternoon; measures 35mm in length and 7mm at its widest point (it is slightly squashed but measurable). Should I drop this in to Mr Plod?!

You will dig plenty more. Very rare not to find a .300/3/6/8 Wherever I go detecting. My machine seems to be a magnet for them.

Always get a tad disappointed to dig these sometimes as the lead in them gives a steady silver response on the 250.
