Long shot guess......... .22...... 762........9mm

The first was dug out of williams/fielding by Russel. The second is the one that shot Durnford and the third is the suicide bullet from Pullein.

Why not? Hell it seems like e bay is fair game.

Calibre is too small for anything that would be around Zululand 1879, it looks like a cupro nickle plated Mk2 .303 round for the lee Metford. I picked up one (although deformed) on the summit of Spion Kop 21.1.2008. (thanks to the goats!)

Middle is Martini, next a P53 bullet, posdibly a Snider, but at this time I would expect to see more nose distortion as hollowed nose cavity tends to collapse.

Here is a picture of the various rates of distortion of impacted Martini and Snider rounds, can anybody guess which one was found at Khambula? and which one came from the mealie fields in front of Durnfords position in the donga and given to me by the farmer in 2009? ...the rest came from Mapperly Range, Nottingham, closed 1895, hmm, ebay? and a few trumped up descriptions.........see you in the Bahamas boys! after I have extorted you of your hard earned wonga's in the donga's LOL LOL LOL LOL sorry if I sound cynical.
