    Hmmmm

    They are rather small ain't they !

    First glance I thought you had some cut through casings like I find on airfields, but they are not that. They almost look like the protective caps off mortar rounds....but again, they are too small.

    Lemme have a dig through my stuff......they ring a bell....they really do...

    <---deep in thought

    Hello all
    these items seem to be brass heads of some kind of cartridges, perhaps for hunting purposes.
    Best regards
