Relic shows are cancelling left and right, and one show promoter told me he didn't think there'd be any shows until next year. If that's the case, we'll sorely miss seeing our friends. Who knows what will happen, but we're still here operating in this new, online-only world. Getting things to where we can photograph and ship them is a little more challenging than usual, but fortunately some good people keep asking us to buy and sell their accumulations so we're plugging away! Please be patient and stay safe.

We continue to experience intermittent delivery of order emails, so it's wise to email us directly at and to be sure your order gets through. Thank you for your patience while we try to address this.

Description:Model 1855 Austrian Lorenz "compression" bullet. The large rings were designed to compress down like a modern plastic water bottle and in this way the bullet would expand upon firing to engage the rifling of the barrel. Very similar to the von Lenke bullet (MM487) and of the same family.
