Me & my friend decided to stomp around in the woods for some relicas. We both found a musket ball and I found a 2 ringer. Don't know if its a Gardner, because it seems to be less than 1/2" in dia and only has a slight concave bottom. (UPDATED) Probably not, it has tiny ridges in the grooves. Meaning this was 1870 later cartridge style. Oh well, still pretty old.

Also found a smashed musket ball or ringer. Anyway it was a fun hunt.

Top three are definitely 1800's and the ones on the bottom I don't think so.
