I found this during my second trip to the same location where I found the bullets. I am not sure whether this is a bullet, screw, button, pin, or what. But it was in the same general area, buried 6-8 inches deep. The item is very small (a little larger than a pencil eraser). Just curious to see if anyone know what this is. Thanks again to everyone for the help.

    Hi, BHock45! Haven't a clue. Doesn't look like a bullet to me, but I am very ignorant of bullets!, and will ask my brother to take a look when I see him on Monday. Could this be an old corroded rivet?...Hope you have a great weekend.

    Looks like an old Dzeus fastener from an aircraft. Can't be positive from the pics but ask an old time mechanic around your local airport.

    It hasn't changed I see. It's still an old style Dzeus fastener. The head will have a slot for a common screwdriver. They are 1/4 turn fasteners fo eng. cowling etc..

    Hey blunderbuss, have been away for awhile so I will change it. Thanks for helping me out! Yeah, it is like the size of my fingernail so I wasn't so sure it would be an effective bullet. If I find anymore mysteries I know where to go!
