A surprising find

Well, I was cleaning my deer skull, what should I find? It appears to be a bullet!

Wow. I would definitely try to keep it in there! Looks like someone tried a head shot with 22

Looks to big for a 22. Might be buck shot or muzzle loader.

Yep, it looks too big for 22. If it was a rifle then the jacket completely slipped the bullet and I dont think a pistol would carry enough velocity to slip the jacket but possible I guess. No telling with all these "new bullets" that manufacturers are pushing these days as hunting bullets due to "new technology". One thing for sure it wasnt a Nosler Partition or Core Lokt :) . That was one lucky deer. Congrats

Compared to that glan hole I still say it's a mushroomed 22. Looks like a solid lead round like a federal lightening or something similar.

If it slipped the jacket then all bullets will appear as all lead. Sierra GKs are notorious for slipping the jacket. But after looking at it again I am going to go with a cast bullet for pistol or rifle such as a 38-55. Just looks way to large for a 22 to me.
