Metal Detecting History: Found The Shooting Range

Well, today was a day for finding bullets! Amazing how many actually. I finally had to stop because of the heat.

Seems I found the shooting range on the property. A few of the bullets I found a bit deeper in the dirt and smashed against the rocks.

The bullet below is similar to the bullets in the very top left of the picture above, except it is much bigger.

The bullets below: (starting left to right) the first 8 say: 40 S&W R-P, then 38 SPL R-P, then what looks like 380 Auto S&W, then 30 Carbine R-P.  I believe S&W means Smith & Wesson, is that right? What does R-P mean?

These appear to be the older variety bullets

  1. Nice bullet finds Amy, I’m just in the process of learning about the different types of bullet myself – there’s quite a lot of different types and calibres. Well done! Regards Supernova.
