Description:These bullets are called "stretchies" because they got elongated from having been forced into a smaller gauge breechloading carbine and fired from that instead of the 58 cal. rifled muzzleloader for which they were intended. This one is shown in Tom Stelma's book in chapter 11, bullet number 10.
