    I have been researching like crazy and came across this picture. I believe it is the same item in better form, it was labeled as a 20 mm Canadian bullet on the website, but I'm not sure that'Click image for larger version.

    This would not explain the plastic part of the object, however.

    It is metal and does look like bullet. But not sure about it!
    Can't help sharing this link to a cute novel site that is different from anything I have seen before. Should be interesting for anyone that like their stuff to be reused or to buy second-hand. :) http://www.jumblets.com

    Oh. Ok.....a bit of education......

    Bullet - The projectile that leaves the barrel of a gun when fired and travels, at high speed, through the air until it hits something.
    Cartridge - The brass case that contains the propellent charge to 'shoot' a bullet from a gun
    Round - A cartridge and a bullet that are together as one piece

    What you think you had was a bullet. The picture you've shown is a cartridge. These are two totally different things. What you found is a lump of metal that is vaguely bullet shaped, but not a bullet. It is more likely an old battery or something similar.

    The cartridge case in question in the above post is a 20mm Hispano, considerably larger than our unknown object which I think we have all agreed is not a bullet.

    Yes, I've gotten that it's not a bullet, but couldn't delete the word "bullet" from the post - sorry about that.
    I thought the other one above looked like it had a plastic end (the one Tony says is a 20 mm Hispano) like our unknown object.
    I've begun researching batteries now.... we'll figure it out one of these days Thanks for your help everyone!
