9mm bullett

Post by andiron » Mon Sep 09, 2019 9:40 pm

Hi, I have found a 9mm bullett on the foreshore of river Thames, probably from ww2 as it has number 43 at the bottom. The question is what to do with it? Should I take it to the police station? Or for the future, as it's a second live bullett I found there (I threw the first one away to the river) - so not sure what's the suggested action? Not adding a pic as it looks exactly like the one that appears on google images.

Ok thanks for that :) I checked on their website earlier on and it led me to a page saying do not touch, do not approach, call police asap.. where's here it says don't call unless you willing.to face police coming to you with guns x;

"where's here it says don't call unless you willing.to face police coming to you with guns"

It doesn't say that at all, I guess your interpretation is different to mine, oh well. :D

I find around 5 live bullets a year


normally I loose them again


would depend on quantity and size. Never found a stash, Or anything larger than 303 that live.
