    Well a bit of an update.

    I found 4 x 3" Typhoon Rocket fins, a live .30Cal, a few casings, and some weird cast iron pieces,

    if anyone know why there is "half" a bullet with the bottom cut clean off I would appreciate some info, seems a bit odd

    I think that the odd shaped piece with the circular "hole" is for mounting rockets as seen below

    Hi Jim,
    You are correct. Its called a saddle. There should be another one buried close by... Very exciting

    We were detecting for about 2.5 hours and found this. If I find another I will let you know!!

    Any idea what the other two pieces are?? They are mirror images of each other

    Can't figure out the cast iron pieces. It looks like they have a pair of rollers at the bottom of the "U", is that correct?
    The strap is probably from a rocket motor box to retain the lid but it could also be from a fin box or a saddle box. How long is it ?

    Cheers Gary

    That's about right for a rocket motor box.
