    Is not a grenade !
    And probably not an artillery shell because I don't see a place for a driving band.

    Is it really light compared to its size?

    Cheers

    Unfortunately I only have the pictures, it is an item found in Donegal, Ireland which I have been asked to help identify.

    I'm going to take a wild guess here and say you might have it upside down.

    Could it be a mortar projectile?

    It certainly bears some resemblance to a minenwerfer projectile or similar type of trench mortar projectile from WW1. With shipping nose plug(?) and without driving band(?) as Yodamaster pointed out, see: http://www.bocn.co.uk/vbforum/hi-unknow-head-t4258.html

    Maybe a WW1 display piece that got discarded with time??? Or not!
