These look like bullets but have only seen 3 ringers before these have four rings they all came out the same hole this evening I’m thinking they may not be bullets but no idea what they might have been used for

Maybe wadcutter bullets for paper target shooting, could be why most are still intact?

I have done a quick search and found a few examples of bullets like this, but they were all in the USA.

Certainly different to the norm.

Depending on the diameter,they look similar to the martini rifle bullets an d probably Victorian.

Sounds like a .577 but I’m sure there’s someone more knowledgeable than me.
