I'm not sure if these are from the civil war or later. solid lead bullets of different kinds. i think the empty shell is a home made gunpowder measuring. Gauge

    The 3 bullets to the right are more current era. Probably after 1940 as hollow-points were really not known or used earlier. Early in centre fire cases ther were Berdan & Boxer primers. One had 2 holes in the primer pocket(I believe Boxer) & the other a single centre hole. Those appear to be possible Boxer & not common. That sys. hung in longer in europe & a collector of old ammo might be interested.
