    I was thinking it was more of a .27 bc i found .22 cases as well (rim fire) and they were a lot smaller. These are wider and long like an oversized .22LR probably sometime of .27LR its made by dominion but im not sure when it was made or any info about it.

    Could also be a .22 Magnum.

    The object in picture #6 is the remains of a propelling cartridge for a 2 inch mortar bomb,so be aware you could dig up a live unexploded one......Pete.

    @pete are you talking about the round thing that says dominion regal on it? Im pretty sure thats a 12gauge shell bc it says no.12 on it i thought that grey piece of metal with the lock nut on it could be from a mortar but i have no idea.

    Hi,I could only see the #2 on it,ihe 2 inch mortar cartridge is marked no. 28.The diameter of a no. 28 is 0.672 inches,a no.12 is 0.882,so maybe I am wrong ....again.....Pete.
