Hello! New here and I have a serious question of the board.
I have what appears to be a slightly mangled flatbase spitzer steel bullet core.
No jacket material -if there was a jacket- remains and there a no rifling marks (Which is why we are calling it a core).
It is about .25 inches in diameter at the thickest part, tapering to about a .125 inch flat point. It would be about .75 inches long if the front 1/3rd wasn’t bent over.
The projectile went through several layers of aluminum alloy sheet metal.
The 1st layer penetrated produced a hole 1 inch in diameter.
I don’t want to influence any opinions with my thoughts of what the original caliber or cartridge is.
And, unfortunately, I can’t go into much detail of where/when/what etc.
Needless to say there are very interested personnel who are asking questions.
Does anyone have any ideas on what I might have here?
Thanks n advance.
