Yup, I've observed the same in my finds. Some with the noses really beaten down leaving a perfect ramrod imprint. I also have one that is badly mangled from an attempted pulling with a worm that failed and was finally shot out.BTW: It appears that troops often had trouble loading a dirty bore. i have a quart jar of Civil War battle field pickup Minie balls; About ten percent have the noses badly battered from whanging with the ramrod.
