    Looks too big for a 12 or 10 gauge shotgun. Assuming of course that the mini ball is at least a 50 Cal or 68 Cal.

    Where was this found?? Only reason I ask is that it looks just like a lump of lead found on my property a few years back that was classified by an archaeologist as an either a Roman or even a later Medieval trading weight.

    If this was found in the U.S. then it's likely something else...... A plumbob maybe???

    I might be with Dean on this one. It looks like what we in east PA call a pumpkin ball or shotgun slug used for hunting deer Or a punt gun in a bigger bore.

    I had spotted the hole for a possible string attachment, so yeah, I think that's likely. Amazing to think it could be 2,000 years old.
