Description:This is a super example of a rare Read bolt. While the rounded nose bolts with the thick copper sabot are occasionally seen, this type with a pointed nose and long lathed sabot are rarely seen. We've only had a few of them in 12 years. They also have an interesting look as the nose diameter near the bourrelet appears smaller than the body diameter.

The iron on this example is as good as you could ever ask for. It is practically non-battlefield. The sabot clearly shows the rifling from the gun. This is just a super example.

Shell is inert, cleaned and coated.
