was setting up some targets and saw these large bullets sitting on the berm. Picked em up because they were so large and in reasonable shape.

I noticed on the base there was lettering, looks reversed. Could this be from someone patching their bullets with newspaper or is it from something else?

Paper from butter.

It's probably from a newspaper wad. Many BPCR shooters use a newspaper wad under their bullets to prevent the wad column sticking to the bullet base.

Most likely a news print wad under the bullet. Most folks do not patch greasegroove bullets. Bullets that are paper patched usually show evidence of the paper grain on the bearing surface.
