Nice "Foreign Mold" Looking .577 Three-Ring Minie
Here is a Very Nice Dropped 3-Ring Minie for .577 Rifle ! I’m not positive which MM number this is. It almost has a “foreign mold” look to it, but also somewhat resembles MM400. It’s definitely for .577 as it mics out at about .568-.570 diameter by 1.035 tall. It has a nice mostly white patina with one chip on the bottom of the cavity walls, but no digger damage. The cavity walls are quite thick and the conical cavity medium depth. Much more snowy white in hand. A Fine Dug .577 Bullet ! Recovered Prairie Grove, Arkansas.
