Jim and Dean Thomas indicate they are actually US made Rifled Musket .69 caliber bullets and there is no evidence they are imported. There are 6 variations from no rings to 3 rings. This is one of the 2-ring varieties. These are machine pressed and turned when made. Note that one is a drop and the other has a screw hole in the top where it was extracted by a soldier and discarded.

These came out of a collection of bullets from the Perryville, Kentucky battlefield area.
