    Question Need help identifying unknown projectile or fuse.

    Good evening all. It's been a really long time since I posted. I am wondering, if what is in the picture's is a fuse or projectile. By the weight I think it is lead. I don't see any markings on the item. Its a bit hard to see in the photo but there is a small hole in about the center on the bottom side. Any help on what this is would be much appreciated, Thank you in advance.

    Thank you for the reply, but I was using the 40mm to show a scale of size.

    Don't know the first thing about Ord and projectiles but the casting on this is quite poor. Looks like someone was making this at home.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Yes not a very good cast looks like a rifled slug for big game hunting.
