    They look like they have had the insides sucked out.

    I wonder, is it possible that they were found in water or wet soil that was subject to being frozen and unfrozen on a regular basis?

    If surrounded by water or a lot of moisture, could it be that every time the surroundings became frozen the water, when freezing expanded as it formed ice, squeezed them and distorted them?

    I remember seeing a German canteen on here somewhere that had been found in a bunker and had a similar fluted effect. Apparently it was caused by concussion from an artillery shell or a bomb? Although in this case I would have expected to see the bullets popped out of the cases.
