    The cartridge you have is actually a .50cal, usually used in heavy machine guns mounted on Tanks and such like. It was also the standard aircraft weapon for American planes.

    LC = Lake City Ordnance Plant, USA
    1943 = year (although it is normally represented by just 43)

    Has the blast cap got a firing pin mark on it or is it an unfired case ?

    Nice find
