    .45 Round ID - uncovered during an archaeology project

    This item was uncovered recently during an archaeological excavation on the site of a military camp site on Salisbury Plain. Amongst the artefacts found were several items of ammunition. I will post the details of this on this forum when properly collated. The project is currently working through finds identification and I have been unable to identify this item. Its calibre is .45 inch. The bullet is contained within the remains (neck)of the case. It has been separated at some stage from the rest of the cartridge. What remains was the neck wrapped around the bullet with the wad at the base of the bullet.
    The bullet is seated well into the neck - there is no sign of it having been jammed into the cartridge (ie misfeed). The base of the bullet has a copper cap. Can anybody ID?
