Old bullet found need help identifying

Found when I was metal detecting. I found this old bullet can someone help me identify.

It is going to be hard to ID without other views, dimensions, and the weight.
Does not look particularly ‘bullet’ to me from the single picture…

Deano45,

Welcome to the Forum.

I suspect what you have found is not actually a bullet but rather a lead finial or gaming piece or fishing weight (sinker) etc. In additon people, in particular soilders (US Civil War for example) used to make all sorts of little items out of lead which are found now days by people metal detecting. There are seveal major books published in the last 25 years concerning found US Civil War bullets and typically these books have a chapter concering all sorts of lead non-bullet or carved bullet items found while metal detecting Civil War campsites and battle fields.

Hope this helps.
