    UNKNOWN BRASS BULLET

    Hi Guys.
    I picked this up at the car boot sale today for 50p.
    it is 80mm long by 20mm wide at the base.
    it appears to be solid brass.
    Any ideas??
    Cheers, Paul.

    Nice but probably "Home made" especially if it is solid Brass.

    If it is 20 mm wide at its base then it is unlikly to be a 20 mm calibre as the outer Diameter would need to be about 21 mm to engage in the guns rifling !

    However, lots of strange things turn up that can be impossible to identify-good luck with your enquiry.
