Sensei Canna offers insight into the real world of self defense!

I received this email. Perhaps someone on this forum can help out. gem
I am not a gun collector or even a hunter, but I keep finding these lead bullets (I Guess) in my backyard. Could you tell me what they came from by this description.
About 3/16 in diameter, and about 3/8 long (or about the size of a cigarette butt.) Flat on both ends and 3 groved ridges circling the bullet. I assume they are bullets because I have found several that are smashed as if they hit something.
Thanks Ron Richardson

.38 Special "wadcutter" lead alloy target projectiles. They sound like 158 grain versions.
I don't think anything else fits the description.
The 3 circular grooves are to accept "lubricant" to prevent "barrel leading".
Their should also be some lateral marks from the pistols bore, normally 4 at about a 5-10 degree pitch.
