Default Gotta admit I'm out of shape..

Got out on my first long hunt for the year 4 1/2 hours, I guess after sitting around all winter I got out of shape bad..I was fine for the first 2-3 hours then after the 4th hour I felt like I was gonna drop over.. Anyways made it over to a small park in Sedalia, MO that had very few signals, but did manage one silver on edge at about 4 inches & some clad..I found the bullet in a small wooded part just on the edge of the park..I've found civil war bullets before, but this one looks different & all the one's I've ever found come out white colored..Any clues what it is..Thanks

Congrats on the nice Merc. Take a hot shower and a hot toddy and you'll be fine in the morning. LOL Someone else will have to help you out with the bullet. Good Luck on future hunts. : )
