Description:This shell measures 3.50" with my calipers and so I'm pretty sure it is a Hotchkiss 3.5-Inch bolt for the Wiard 3.6-Inch rifle. Unfortunately the lead has lost any rifling and patina which is what accounts for the low price on this rarity 8 projectile. Iron is in decent shape with no heavy ground action and only a couple pit areas that aren't deep. The shell displays pretty well. If perfect this one would be $375 but given the lead and iron and me getting it for a good price this one is far less. It really is a nice projectile for the money.

Shell is inert, cleaned and coated.
